"I Hate Winter" Cornhole Tournament - 2nd Saturday in February

The "I Hate Winter" Cornhole Tournament is hosted in the Scherr-Howe Event Center each February. This tournament started for two reasons. Firstly, February is notoriously cold in Northern South Dakota; secondly, cornhole is a midwest favorite. Put the two together and you come up with an event which allows us to enjoy the great game of cornhole in the middle of winter.

Registration for the tournament opens around mid-January each year.
