Whether a player chooses to stand alongside the board with feet firmly planted or elects to stride as he/she tosses the bag, the player’s toes must not pass the front edge of the board (Foot Foul Line).
BAGGO has a lot in common with golf, bowling and horseshoes. Concentration and follow through are crucial.
- Keep wrist straight but not stiff
- Keep eyes on the target
- Follow through smoothly, aligning arm with the target
- Ideal arc is approximately 8 to 9 feet with a 45° approach angle
- Lower trajectories are desirable in windy conditions or to push in other bags
How a player chooses to hold or fold the bag is personal preference. Here are a few favorite folds of BAGGO tournament champions:
Hold the corner of the bag, let the filling/particulate drop to the bottom, fold in half and then fold in half again.
Smooth out the bag and toss underhand.
