Who hasn't wanted to be a part of a Guinness World Record? Okay, maybe not the longest fingernails or best beard on a lady...but one of the other awesome records! Like how about being a part of the biggest Cornhole Tournament the world has ever known? That sound like a good one? You know it does! Cornhole, if you've never tailgated for a football game or a concert is also commonly referred to as "Bags" and the object of the game is to toss a cloth bag filled with un-popped popcorn 27 feet to a board with a 5 inch hole in the center. Cornhole can be played with 2 or 4 players, you just pick which side of the board you'll throw from and your partner's pitching box will be directly across from you.

Now, playing cornhole is always fun, and being part of breaking a world record sounds cool but what if this event was also a fundraiser? It is - and a great one! The event is sponsored by the Haslett High School Class of 2018 for the Senior Party. Every year the parents of the Haslett High School seniors carry on a time-honored tradition of planning a school sanctioned, drug and alcohol free, party for all members of the graduating class. This parent-organized party, planned around a “Secret Theme”, is held at the High School and has proven to be a memorable sendoff event that the students both greatly anticipate and appreciate. This event can be costly, so the more funds that are raised now, the less the family will have to contribute during the senior year.

So grab your friends and family (must be a high school student or older) and get to Hope Sports Complex in Lansing on September 10, 2016 for this one-of-a-kind event. The Guinness Book of World Records for the most players is 282 contestants, but we are hoping to break that goal with 300 corn-hole applicants.
