Third Annual Cornhole Cup Brings Young Brokers to Atlantic Station

By Mike Shelly, Senior Vice President, Carter

Atlanta (May 24, 2010) – Commercial real estate brokers are warriors during DSCN0816negotiations, often showing no mercy when it comes to getting deals done.

It was no different at the park in the center of Atlantic Station May 11 as teams of young brokers squared off against one in another in a slightly more civilized, good natured way – a game of Cornhole.

Carter hosted its third annual Cornhole Cup at Central Park, an event aimed at introducing young brokers to Atlantic Station. At stake? Pride, bragging rights, and some serious prizes: Two motorized coolers that can be ridden like scooters. 

Cornhole is a Cornhole 2(2)game involving bean bags and short, slanted wooden tables, with a hole near the back only slightly larger than the bean bags themselves. Alternating between teammates, players toss the bean bags about 33 feet, trying to land them in the hole for points. 

This is a game that was born out of fraternity houses and tailgate parties, so as logic follows cold beverages, grilled hamburgers and chips and salsa were in good supply.

It was great event, and an opportunity for us to loosen our ties and have some fun with our colleagues, and show them  all Atlantic Station has to offer.
