Ironstone Throwdown in the Vineyards

Cornhole Tournament & State BBQ Championship

Saturday, June 1, 2019 – Murphys, CA

Be advised that this new BBQ contest WILL sell out- quickly!

What pairs best with the region’s best wine?

Championship BBQ of course!

This event is so much more than a Cornhole Tournament and a BBQ contest, it’s a Kansas City BBQ Society (KCBS) sanctioned four meat Championship Series event, a Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue (draw) an American Royal Invitational Qualifier, as well as a Team of the Year (ToY) event for KCBS. Cornhole players can also receive ACL points!
