This month’s nomination goes to Chrissy Horten, she was nominated by Clair Curow. I’ve got a winner of a lady. Her name is Chrissy Horten. She’s an amazing player but also an amazing human. I’ve been playing with her for about a year now and I’ve learned so much from her.
When we held our ladies league with AzbagzCornhole Boards and Events we had players from all levels play and she was so helpful to everyone and I know others learned from her as well. She inspires me as a player. We recently finished our BYOP league and at the end we have a tournament and her partner couldn’t make it she she still played but had to start 8 points in the hole and this lady still took second place.
Now this is an accomplishment because we have some awesome players in our league. She just threw ! Whenever there is a benefit Cornhole tournament, which happen all the time because the whole Cornhole community it like a family and we always come to support she is always volunteering. Whether it’s her time,baking skills or raffle prizes she always delivers. For me and I’m sure to others she’s like the mama bear of the group, she really holds everyone together. For all her friends who are on this page too send this wonderful lady some love it’s well deserved!

I went over to some friends house, and they were playing. I didn’t want to just sit there and watch. I saw
the other women playing so I decided to give it a try.
5. What is your favorite thing about Cornhole?
There arena few things I like. The people for one- some of the people I meet If I hadn’t played then I would never of met them. I like how everyone can play no age restriction, and everyone has fun. I like how other players will come up to me and say hey try doing this and see if this helps you. I like the feedback and then of course winning and getting you picture taken with either just you or your partner that is always fun.
6. What does Cornhole bring to your life?
Every day somewhere you can play. I have never been as busy as I am now- we travel quite a bit. Take weekend trips to Rocky Point to play, or get on a plane and fly to another state. Its a very busy and enjoyable hobby.
7. Other interesting facts?
During my time playing Cornhole I have met and played with some Professional Players which have also turned out to be wonderful friends. Greg Cather is the most humble and down to earth man- Tino Mendoza is always fun it doesn’t take but a few throws for him to whoop my butt. Ty Lopez he is a very fun person to play. He does encourage me and he gives me a few chances to get a couple of points but in a drop of dime he will end the game. Bill Hadley- I remember the 1st time I met him- I had no clue who he was, but we got paired up in a Blind draw and I was brand new. After the game he pulled me to the side and showed me some of his tricks. He was one of the 1st people to show me how to hold the bag and throw it correctly. The reason I say this about these particular players is to say- All of these men are very nice, humble and great men to paly with. But the one person who is my FAVORITE to play is my Women’s Partner Elizabeth Soria she is by far the BESTEST and my favorite we have placed 2nd in Women’s Doubles in the past 2 events – due to me not her- but her and I have sooo much playing and awesome chemistry that if one of goes off the board or makes a mistake it’s OK we encourage and lift each other up. She is such an AMAZING, FUNNY, WONDERFUL, GREAT partner and friend. Next event we are aiming for 1st in Women’s Doubles.
