1. The following are rule violations that must be spotted and called by a player or assigned judge. The penalty is to declare the bag a foul bag, which requires the bags to be removed from the court prior to resuming play. A foul bag is defined as:
(a) Any bag pitched when the player has (1) made contact with or crossed over the foul line, or (2) started or stepped completely outside the pitcher’s box before the bag is released
(b) Any bag not delivered within the 20-second time limit
(c) A bag pitched from a different pitcher’s box than the first bag
(d) Any bag that contacted the court or the ground before coming to rest on the board
(e) Any bag that struck a previously defined object such as a tree limb, wire, indoor court ceiling, etc.
(f) Any bag removed from the board before scoring has been agreed upon for that bag
(i).The offending team (who touches the bags) forfeits all remaining bags and tallies the score of just the bags thrown before the foul was reported
(ii).The non-offending team tallies twelve (12) points as if they had thrown four Bag In-The-Holes (Cornholes) during the inning
2. A bag that leaves a player’s hand once the final forward swing of the delivery process has started shall count as a pitched bag.
3. A bag that is accidentally dropped by a player before the final forward swing has started shall not be considered foul and may be picked up and pitched. Protests – If a player desires to make a protest, the protest shall be made to the judge or official at the time the problem occurs. The judge shall make the final ruling on all protests.
