Organizers of a world record attempt for the longest game of corn hole in Nebraska announced they met their goal Friday -- and they are still going. Andy Fedoris, one of the players attempting the world record in the gymnasium at Lourdes Central Catholic School in Nebraska City, said the team discovered the Guinness World Records time to beat was 26 hours, 13 minutes.
