Jimmy Johns Marigold Bags Tourney Applications Available

Last year’s phenomenally successful Jimmy John’s Marigold Festival Bags Tournament is back for a 2nd year. The 2009 tournament will feature twice the number of teams (128) and twice the prize money. First prize is $1000. The tourney will be on Saturday, September 12th at Mineral Springs Park, Diamond #1. The first round begins at 12:00pm.

Bags is a game similar to horseshoes (without the possibility of brain damage), but played with corn bags and portable game boards.

The committee would like to thank the Pekin Community High School graphic arts class and teacher Steve Huey for designing the posters, entry forms, and newspaper advertising.

So enter early (it’s cheaper) and come out to beautiful Mineral Springs Park to enjoy the sun and fun of a first class Bags tournament.

Entry forms may be down loaded at www.pekin.net/Photos/MarigoldPix/BagsEntry09.pdf or you can go to the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce or your local Jimmy John’s to pick up an entry form
