Scoring- 1 point for being on the board, 3 points if you are leaning over the edge of the cup and 5 if you are in the cup.
Boards are placed 21' from center of one hole to the other.
To determine who will "pitch" first to start the game each player will throw one washer toward the opposite board and whoever gets closest to the hole will be the first to throw. After the game has started, the person or team who scored last will throw first.
Playing the game: Player A will pitch their 3 washers (one at a time) toward the opposite board followed by player B. Scoring is determined after both players have pitched all of their washers. Only 1 player/team may score per round and scores points for all washers on the board that are closer than their opponents. The winner is the 1st team to reach 21 points.
There are no "skunk" rules, and you do NOT need to win by 2 points. The tournament will be double elimination.
Once you lose TWO games, you are eliminated from the tournament.
