2020, 2021, 2022 Event Cancelled

Hey Brew Crew! We have made the difficult decision to cancel the Ales for Trails festival for 2020-2022 due to COVID-19. That being said TRAILS AND BEER ARE NOT CANCELED!

Stay tuned for exclusive activation events to raise awareness and funds for the trail system throughout Fort Smith.

Cheers to future Ales for Trails!

Tournament Rules and Information:

  • Winner is first team to score 21 points or more
  • 3 points for each bag in the hole (That’s a BAGGO!)
  • 1 point for each bag on the board is an Ace
  • Score is the difference in the team totals
  • Boards are 20 feet apart
  • Limit of 20 minutes per game
  • In doubles, team partners face each other from opposite boards
  • Each team plays with 4 bags
  • Opponents alternate tosses until all 8 bags are thrown
  • The round is then scored (See Scoring)
  • The last team to score on previous round tosses first
  • Toss again if any interference occurs
  • Opponents may call Foot Foul and the call must be honored
  • Bags pushed in by an opponent’s toss count as a BAGGO
  • The game is over if the score reaches 11 to Zero (SKUNK)
  • If a bag ever touches the ground or is tossed out of turn, it doesn’t count

 Example: After 1 round of 8 bags played - #1 team with 1 bag in the hole = 3 points - #2 team with 2 bags on the board = 2 points - Score for the 1st round for #1 team = 1 point
 The Championship match will be best 2 out of 3 - All other rounds will be a single match.
