Now that it’s football time, one of the favorite things for college students and fans to do is to tailgate. When you tailgate you have to have two things beer and cornhole. We all have our favorite type of beer, so that is a given as to what your gonna buy for the big game. You may already have some cornhole boards, but don’t you want the best! Dont you want the one’s that make everyone say “oh yeah, he has the nice boards!”
A few months ago I was on a mission to find the best present for my boyfriend for our anniversary! At the same time I became settled on the fact that I wanted cornhole boards for myself, so why not get him cornhole boards, because after all what’s his, is mine! After checking some boards out on the side of the road, seeing some in stores and seeing some that my friends had; come to find out the best cornhole boards were being built down the street from me. Now I am a girl and I may not know much about handcrafted cornhole boards, but I have played on many sets and I know when I am playing on a good set of cornhole boards! Each board is solid oak wood so they are heavy, but they dont rattle, nor slide and they stay flat with the ground. “Mark- The Cornhold Guy” (how it is in my phone) puts a lot of effort in making the boards and it is noticeable. So noticeable he makes all the boards for the the restaurant Roosters in Louisville, Ky. All his boards are handpainted and monogrammed. For a set of boards with 8 bags monogramed with your favorite team will cost around $150. Price varies depending on the the colors and design, but the quality of wood is the same for all. He can do any team or anything you want on them. The team on the boards in the picture are the University of Louisville Cardinals, this set cost $150. His cornhole boards are also listed on Craigslist, but I will be glad to forward his number to anyone looking for a nice set of cornhole boards.
I am a big supporter of local businesses and people making their own creations. I would rather put my money into a new business that I hope gets the recognition it deserves, instead of a franchise where my money and business would not matter anyways.
At the end of the day we love taking our boards to parties, I can tell my boyfriend loves the attention he gets when his friends tell him how nice his boards are and when they ask him to bring his. I love the credit I get from my boyfriend and his friends because it makes me look like an awesome girlfriend!
