Petition at 89.1 the Lakeshore.
Petition at 89.1 the Lakeshore.
Paul Nelson

Paul Nelson is not alone. Cornhole fans all across the Country agree, the Olympics need Cornhole as an event! But foremost, a number of things need to ensue. Olympic events do not come to pass overnight. There are loads of complexities in the political realm to justify a new Olympic sporting event; nevertheless Paul Nelson is one man who is passionately taking matters into his own hands. By means of his diverse knowledge, Paul has engineered an online Petition that pleads, “We, the undersigned, request consideration of the sport known both as Cornhole and Bags to be recognized by the International Olympic Committee as an officially sanctioned sport and considered for inclusion in future Olympic events.”

The petition has a lofty goal of 10,000 supporters but with the sport of Cornhole emerging at such a rapid pace Paul has high hopes to accomplish that goal.

If you are a Cornhole fan and would love to see Cornhole as an Olympic sport one day please take a moment and support this effort. Visit the Petition Website now and become part of history.

Paul was kind enough to present a small bio about himself and his remarkable accomplishments.

"Paul grew up in the northwest Indiana suburbs, an area fonldy known as ‘the Region’. At the age of 11 he made his first video project, titled Gone Fishin’, with his brother Josh (now an advisor on his independent projects) on a PXL2000. Twenty years later he is still having fun producing projects that require him to wear many hats.

It was also around the age of 11 that Paul was introduced to the topic of his latest documentary, a game known commonly as Bean Bags and Cornhole, or as he usually refers to it today, Bags. Like video, it would be a source of fun that would later become a passion. The project, Brotherhood of Bags: Cornholing America, is an hour long documentary covering the game, the people who play, compete, and create business from it, and its role in modern American sports. This will be the 7th documentary that Paul has produced, but his first independent feature. (Due out this Summer)

Paul has also directed other television projects including magazine style educational programs, a local music show, music videos, artist bio videos, and the first fire safety video made exclusively for the deaf and hard of hearing. His work on other programs include studio and field productions of local news, current events shows, and college sports broadcasts.

"The Region" on the south shore of Lake Michigan is his residence and base of operations."
