    Don't know how popular the game is in Portland, whether any of you play or not. Played a lot in Chicago growing up.

    Anyways, I've made a few sets for friends recently, thought I'd throw it out here.

    Here's a generic picture of what the boards look like:

    A little about the game:

    Figured I could custom make them for $125 for the set(2 boards, 8 bags), buyer choosing the color scheme they prefer on the boards and bags.

    It's a popular game here at the beach in San Diego.

    Yeah, they were popping up at a lot of the bars in Chicago when I left there. And most of my friends back there have sets at home. Know of a few people here with them. Always a fun game at a party.

    ...there is a bar in NE Portland that actually has a Cornhole league in the summer --> http://gladstonestreetpub.com/

    My buddy did this for awhile in 2011 in the Portland area and made some extra cash. I even posted about this back then --> http://sportstwo.com/threads/193828-OT-Custom-Portland-Trailblazer-Cornhole-Boards-Bags

    He stopped taking orders because it became too time consuming for him to keep up with. Most of his clients came word of mouth. I also created a website for him, at the time that used to rank #1 for "portland cornhole", that generated a few sales as well. Another good avenue to sell more orders would be Craigslist. And if you really want to blow this up and do it big-time, then I have the domain url CornholeOregon.com waiting to be developed with somebody that is serious about making custom cornhole sets! I have many ideas for the site as well as the business in order to generate more revenue! Good luck with your sales in the meantime...

    Very cool. If I find the need, I'd definitely let you know. Don't see it really taking off, lol. Just figured it was worth seeing if anyone here had any interest at all. Maybe everyone will, and then Ill have to have you hook me up with the website.

    I'd suggest we have a Cornhole tournament with Blazers Edge but that just sounds way too kinky.

    So we are allowed to say 'cornhole' in thread titles?

    Is there a particular type of regulation bag? We just use socks with beans in them

    I think the "regulation" bag is a 6x6 canvas bag filled with corn kernels.

    I'm on my phone 99% of the time, and for some odd reason, the first thread title doesn't show up on it. No need for you to be subjected to that LaMarcus crap though.....
