Corn-holing at the NAC an officially sanctioned activity

WDTPRDAD has received word that corn-holing has been approved at the Pontifical North American College as an officially sanctioned activity.  Not only has it been approved, but according to the missive that we have received, it seems that one can earn points based upon ones skill at corn-holing. Who would ever have thought!

 

This has been confirmed to be the favored back yard, back room, back staircase or secret alcove in the basement game.

Usually played in pairs, it seems that the sports prefects are planning an actual tournament for later in the year.

Being the well versed academics they are a very serious set of rules are followed. My comments as always are in red.

Corn Hole Scoring
Traditional 21:  The game shall be played to the pre-determined number of twenty-one (21) points.  The first player/team to reach that amount at the conclusion of a frame is the winner. However, if one team goes over 21 they return to 13 points.e
Frame – A frame consists of a player pitching his bag from one playing surface to another. Players must pitch their bags from the same side of the playing surface in a frame.
1 Point – Refers to any  bag that has been pitched and remains on the cornhole  surface at the conclusion of the frame. Note: in group play, one player may forcefully knock another players bag off the corn hole using his own bag.
3 Points – Refers to any bag that has been pitched and passes through the cornhole (OUCH) at anytime within the frame.( Remember, the harder you pitch the deeper your bag will land in the corn hole.)
Foul Bags – Refers to any bag that was designated a foul bag as the result of rules violation. Bags contacting the ground before reaching the playing surface and bags pitched when a player has crossed the foul line are Foul Bags. If a foul bag lands on the playing surface or comes to rest touching the ground and the corn hole, it must be removed (and washed thoroughly) immediately.  One thing I learned from my days the PCED is that there is nothing worse than a foul bag (except maybe a foul corn hole). So remember to keep your bags clean and off the ground.

 Remember these rule and maybe you can be the winner of the NAC Corn Hole Cup!


All participants will receive an official NAC Corn Hole Association beverage wrap.

  1. This is a disgusting post. What is the reason for mocking a seminary and the men studying there?

  3. Anonymous #1 What is disgusting about the game corn hole? It is quite popular on many college campuses, and even as a party game among the retired. My Granny D used to play in a tournament at her retirement village in Spring Hill FL.

    I would NEVER mock the young men at the NAC. They are some of the finest future priests that the dioceses of this Great Republic have to offer. I have NOTHING BUT RESPECT for each and every one of them. I pray for them every day! While they are now so young and idealistic -- innocent even-- they will soon, because of their intellectual capabilities and formation, be called upon to work in chanceries around the country where they will see first hand how things really work in the church. Those who persevere will either overcome the despondency and become even better parish priests or they will lose their souls and become full time chancery flunkies and most likely, some of the youngest monsignori in their respective dioceses.

  5. Still one of my absolute favorite posts! Fr. D, do you think they'll be more of this type? I'm wondering how the guys corholes are doing out there "at NAC"!

    1. Our sources at The NAC have dried up. Though the Future Bishops of America Machine is still well lubed up (so to speak) and running on high speed. Perhaps a few were upset that we made fun of their tap dancing routine?? Who knows?
      Would love to hear from the guys. Tell 'em to drop Father D a line!
