EVERY Backyard Needs These!

Spring is here…summer is right around the corner….and, in my humble opinion, every yard needs Cornhole.  And, if you’re going to have a set, why not have a set cooler than your neighbors’?

Really, if you’re being honest, the only question to ask yourself is, “Exactly what do I want painted on mine?”

Should you go with the Team Spirit vibe, school colors, favorite vacation spot, favorite band, monogrammed as a wedding or anniversary gift, totally custom and off the chart? There’s absolutely a blank slate (or two) calling your name!

I recently ordered a set of Dan’s Custom Cornhole Creations with our school logo painted on them.  First of all, they were done so quickly….secondly, they’re awesome. They are going to be such a perfect addition to campus for both the students and the faculty/staff alike.  Friday afternoon Faculty Fun will surely be centered around some friendly games of cornhole in the very near future!

If you own a company and have a logo, you need these.  If you, say…for example…run a pretty successful blog and have oh, I don’t know maybe a seagull for a logo, you need these.  Just saying.

If you are looking for a Father’s Day gift, a house warming gift, or a birthday gift…here you go.  If you have a friend with a sweet yard and want to ensure you score a few invites over the course of the summer, you might want to consider ordering him/her a set.  The possibilities are endless, the beers are cold, the bean bags are waiting to be tossed.  Make the call.
