Have you heard of cornhole?
The game can be called bean bag toss or bean bag, but Bruce and Ken Beideman call it cornhole.
"It's pretty much like horseshoes, but it's easier to play because you're not lifting a big, steel horse," said Bruce.
Bruce tells why it's called cornhole.
"The bags are primarily filled with corn," he said.
Ken makes it sound so technical.....NOT.
"Two-foot by four-foot boards with a six-inch hole," he said.
The brothers were introduced to the game three years ago, and they've made it a business - Diamond State Cornhole.
They are hoping to make the game more popular in Delaware.
"We built our own boards first, and I have a graphic arts background, so I started designing boards, and people enjoyed them, people started buying them," he said.
Their logo is Caesar Rodney on horseback tossing a bean bag.
Ken builds the boards, Bruce makes the designs.
"Football teams, baseball teams, there are some business logos," Bruce said.
The brothers have several tournaments set for this year.
"There are some very serious players out there, and it's really growing in this area," Ken said.
The Beidemans are running the Dover Days Cornhole Tournament May 5.
