About the game

Baggo, corn toss, bean bags or cornhole, as it is most commonly called, is an increasingly popular game across the nation where players toss a one-pound bag filled with corn at a sloped box with a hole at one end.   The points are awarded either by tossing the bag into the hole for three points, or if the bag stays atop the box, the player earns one point.  The first individual or team to score 21 points wins the game; best of three games wins the match.

    platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you aree
    using on your blog?

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of
    websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
    I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
