Corn for a Cause: An Annual Cornhole Tournament

Resilient Ministries will be holding a public cornhole tournament this Saturday, August 14th, along with music, other yard games, and outdoor fun! Justin Scott, the Director of Resilient Ministries explains that the tournament is a way to bring the community together for fun outdoor games, as well as raise money for his nonprofit.

The tournament will be held at Washington Park at the Laramie Otta Dahl picnic shelter. The event starts at 9:30am with a meeting regarding the tournament at 9:45am and first toss happening at 10:00am. Teams will consist of two people and will compete in two different divisions for children and adults. “Hopefully we have enough people to play a little round robin before the tournament starts,” says Justin Scott.

While the deadline has passed to sign up and pay for the tournament, fans are encouraged to join in the fun for free! Besides the cornhole tournament itself, families and friends can play a multitude of other yard games at the event, Justin Scott explains. “We will have other yard games there so that family, friends, and fans can not only come in and watch but also play other games.”

This tournament will mark the first fundraising event to be held by Resilient Ministries, and Justin Scott hopes to do more community events in the future. “I put this plan in place right at the beginning, to make this an annual event,” Justin Scott says. “One of the ways that I did that is through our sponsors. The majority of our cornhole boards are sponsored by local businesses, and when they sponsor boards, they get a set of boards engraved with their logo.” The top sponsor of the tournament is Laramie GM Auto Center.

Resilient Ministries is a faith-based nonprofit that focuses mainly on the Laramie community and Laramie families. “One of the facets of my non-profit is that we try to get families and people outdoors,” Justin Scott says. The organization strives to assist individuals who desire strong family bonds, resilient leadership, and faith mentorship.
