The Throwdown 2017OVERVIEW:

The Throwdown is our annual charity cornhole tournament for folks who want to enjoy an afternoon outside tossing bags, while supporting a great local educational non-profit. Whether you’re an expert or you’ve never heard of the game before, it is a great time for all. Relax, no experience is needed to participate! This tournament is wildly fun and the popularity has been growing every year, especially with Denver’s professional crowd. In fact, this is now quite possibly the largest charity cornhole tournament in Denver! What are you waiting for? Register Today!

WHY CORNHOLE?
A more appropriate question should be why not? The Throwdown raises critical funding for Cottonwood Institute to help support our programs to connect high need students to the outdoors and empower them to take action to improve their schools, their communities, and the environment. It’s a noble cause.

WHEN IS IT?
Our next Throwdown is Sunday, August 6th, 2017. Register Today!

WHERE IS IT?
Union Station in Denver, CO. If you are looking at the main entrance of Union Station from Wynkoop Street, the tournament will be in the quad to the right in front of Snooze and Mercantile. The official Cottonwood Institute tent and banner will mark the official spot along with 16 or so cornhole sets, so you can’t miss us. Register Today!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We will have 2 separate 32-team brackets playing this year: A Corporate Challenge Bracket (see more info below) from 10am – 1pmish and a Competitive Bracket from 12:30pm – 4pmish. In each bracket, a team of 2 people will start by playing in a 4 team round robin. Each team will play each other, record their wins and scores, and then the top 2 teams from each round robin will advance to the winners bracket. FYI: The winner of the Competitive Bracket will not play the winners of the Corporate Challenge Bracket;)

Corporate Challenge Bracket:

This year, we are introducing a 32-team Corporate Challenge bracket with movers and shakers from some of Colorado’s top companies from 10am – 1pmish. A company may choose to pay for their entire round robin bracket and invite key prospects, customers, clients, vendors, employees, etc. or they may choose to challenge companies from another industry all together. The benefit of this is that you get to play with people you want to network and play with for the first few hours of the tournament and it will help keep the tournament more fun and casual.

  • Corporate Challenge Cost: $1,000 per team, includes 2 participants and 2 spectators who can come eat, drink, and cheer you on.
  • A guarantee of 3 games of cornhole with a 4 team round robin format. The winner of each round robin will advance to the winners bracket.
