4th of July BBQ & Bags


Due to the construction work that will be taking place next to the courts the tournament has been postponed. A new date will be announced when the schedule is worked out.

The CBCA is pleased to announce the 2024 4th of July BBQ & Bags Cornhole Tournament. This tournament honors Clayton Perry, a long time and highly respected manager at Skipolini's in Clayton, who passed away way too young after a spirited battle with cancer. In 2018, when the bocce courts were shut down for construction, Clayton started a cornhole league on the Skipolini's patio. It was an instant hit. Clayton was a huge fan and supporter of bocce and cornhole. We honor his memory in a way he would most enjoy - getting together and having fun.

This is an open tournament, meaning that players do not have to be members of CBCA or the Clayton Cornhole or Bocce Leagues.
