It was a rainy Saturday afternoon on July 14 when the 2nd Franklin Cornhole Doubles Tournament made its way into Franklin history. The dreary weather made no difference to the 16 men’s teams and the three women’s teams awaited the brackets to be set for the events at the Franklin Community Center.

The women started with two strong teams Edwina Hauversburk and Barbara Bullard against the strong competitors of Sue Schultz and Eva Haller. The battle waged and Edwina and Barbara were the Franklin Women Doubles Cornhole Champions.
