I need your help

This must be a Midwest thing.... someone, anyone, help me out. I believe this is real, so what is a "Cornhole" the game?

I think those of us in the liberal cities on the West Coast have a different definition of "cornhole" than those folks in America's Heartland.

Have a great day.
Thank you and goodbye,
Ian

Cornhole, or Corn Toss, is a game in which players take turns pitching small bags filled with corn (or beans) at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues until a player reaches the score of 21. The platforms measure 4'x2' and are generally made of wood, although plastic can be a suitable replacement. The bags are generally 6x6", made with duck cloth, and filled with dry feed corn.

The game appears to have originated in Cincinnati, Ohio, and remains most popular there, especially on the city's west side. It is also growing in popularity among fans of NASCAR stock car racing, particularly those who camp at race sites as well as with college students in the mid-west.

In recent years the game has spread beyond the confines of the mid-west. It has planted its east coast roots at Haverford College which lies just outside of Philadelphia, where the Haverford Cornhole Ring of Champions, made up of members of from across the country, has become a source of cross-regional competition and exhibition.

Cornhole is also sometimes referred to simply as Bean bag.
