CORNHOLE RULES, CHAPTER 3 – CORNHOLE SCORING

3.2 CORNHOLE SCORING – BAG TERMS
Woody – Refers to any cornhole bag that has been pitched and remains on the cornhole board playing surface at the conclusion of the frame.
Cornhole – Refers to any cornhole bag that has been pitched and passes through the cornhole board hole at any time within the frame.
Foul Bags – Refers to any cornhole bag that has not been determined as a “woody” or “cornhole” or was designated a foul bag as the result of rules violation.

Any bag that comes to rest touching the ground and the board.
Any bag which struck a previously defined object such as a tree limb, wire, indoor court ceiling, etc.

3.4 METHODS OF SCORING
Cancellation Scoring: The approved method of scoring for the sport of cornhole is “cancellation” scoring. In cancellation scoring, the points of one player cancel out the points of their opponent. Using this method, only one player/team can score in each frame.
Woody: Each woody is worth one (1) point
Cornhole: Each cornhole is worth three (3) points

3.5 RECORDING THE SCORE
No cornhole bags shall be moved before the scoring is determined. If this decision is in doubt, anofficial shall be called to determine the scoring for the frame in question.
Recording the Score: Players are encouraged to pay close attention to the score at all times. Players are required to keep their own score and update the score sheet after each frame. Players may call upon the Official between frames if any discrepancy occurs regarding the correct score.

One foot or appendage must be completely within the pitcher’s box at the time of releasing the bag.
When pitching a bag, players must release the bag before any part of the player’s body touches the ground on or beyond the foul line

Pitching the Next Frame
The player/team who scored in the preceding frame shall pitch first in the next frame. If neither player/team scores, the player/team who pitched first in the preceding frame shall retain first pitch in the next frame.

Accidental Release
Any cornhole bag that leaves a player’s hand once the final step (if taken) and final forward swing of the delivery process has started, shall count as a pitched bag.
A cornhole bag that is accidentally dropped by a player before the final step (if taken) and final forward swing has started, shall not be considered a foul bag and may be picked up and pitched.

Pitching Out of Turn
If a player pitches out of turn at any time during a frame, their pitch will be considered a Foul Bag and swept from the playing surface.
If the out-of-turn bag affects any bags in play, their opponent has the option of returning all cornhole bags to their original position on the playing surface or leaving all bags as they are.
If the error is not discovered until after two (2) cornhole bags have been pitched, the frame shall continue and be score accordingly.
If no agreement can be reached, an Official shall be called. The Official shall either determine the scoring or void the inning and order it to be repitched.

Touching the bags before the Frame is complete:
If any bags in scoring positions (woodies or cornholes) are touched by a player, whether intentionally or unintentionally, before all bags during the frame are pitched, the frame is over.
The offending team (team who touches the bags) forfeits all remaining bags and tallies the score for the bags they have already thrown during the frame
The non-offending team tallies 12 points as if they had thrown 4 cornholes during the frame.
IMPORTANT NOTE: 12 pts are NOT automatically added the overall score(scoreboard). The 12 pts are only used within this specific frame before cancellation.

OTHER GENERAL RULES

Moving Cornhole Boards and Bags:
A player can only straighten cornhole boards in between frames and with the approval of their opponent. An Official may be called to determine re-placement if a discrepancy is in question.

Timeouts
Each player or team is allowed two 1-minute time outs per game.
A player may only call a time out when it is his/her turn to pitch.
Both players may walk to the other boards to examine bag position during the time out.
Players may not touch the cornhole bags or boards during a timeout.
Important Note: Official time outs may be granted in the case of a busted cornhole bag, equipment malfunctions, or other circumstances at the discretion of the Official. A player will not be charged for time out.

Raking Cornhole Bags
If bags become piled inside the cornhole board hole and may interfere or obstruct with the next pitch or if there is question as to whether a cornhole bag would have naturally fallen through the hole, a player may request to “rake” the cornhole bags that have fallen inside the hole. To request a rake, the player must audibly ask.
An official will be called to rake the bags if a discrepancy is in question.
Important note: During raking, all efforts should be made to leave bags on the playing surface undisrupted, in their natural state, and to leave bags that may hang on the rim of the hole from falling inside the hole unnaturally. If a bag is resting on a piled bag, and unavoidably falls into the hole as a result of raking, then it shall be counted as a “cornhole.”
