Tactical Distributors Cornhole ThrowDown: Best One Yet!

0 comments / Posted by

For the past several years we have hosted a fund raiser event the Wednesday evening leading into the Warrior Expo East trade show.  In the years past it was TD's No Brakes ThrowDown which was a go-cart race.  Vendor sponsors would assemble teams and race for the championship.  Also, attendees could win raffles of awesome donated merchandise and enjoy a BBQ dinner.  Unfortunately, the facility where we hosted the race is no longer in service. This year we came up with a new improved version of the fundraiser & the results prove it!

 

We hosted Tactical Distributors 1st Annual Cornhole ThrowDown to benefit the Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F)!  It was thrown in the back lot of Back Bay Brewery in Virginia Beach, VA.  This year each sponsor got their own set of custom handmade wood cornhole boards that  were theirs to keep after the event.

They each had teams that represented each sponsor.  We used a bracket system to determine the champion!  We also recruited attendees in place of designated team players for those who fell short or were not able to make it.

 

The food & beer truck where also a big hit!  One of our former own has been the local BBQ master & our go-to for all of our throwdowns.  Smoked pork butts, meat beans, slaw & the works!  A new addition to this years event which may have allowed the cash to flow a bit more freely was the Back Bay beer truck with a selection of locally brewed craft beers. Not to mention a DJ that keep the vibes going all night!

We were able to almost double our proceeds from last year due in big part to our bad ass donations we had for our raffle!  We had some of the top tactical gear up for grabs from such brands as Arc'teryx, Suunto and Crye to name a few.  The real head turners were the fire arms that were in the mix...including SIG MCX Virtus, Zev Glock 19 & the most sought after being the SOC-F Custom Rifle!

The night was topped off with the climactic drawing of raffle (complete with woo-hoos & boos!) & the final cornhole play offs!

TD did not win the cornhole tournement (we came in turd...I mean 3rd) but one of our own was the BIG WINNER of the grand prize, the custom SOC-F AR-15.

We are proud to say all the hard work & fun paid off!  Together we raised $11,500 for SOC-F! It was great start to what is sure to become the standard for our future throwdowns.  Also, it was the perfect way to start our big week at Warrior Expo East!  We are already starting to plan for the next year and want to keep it growing, we hope to see you next there!
