*Note for this event that there is a blind draw. If players participate in both the Advanced Blind Draw and another Doubles tournament then they keep their highest points score from either of those events. This blind draw may or may not be held at future ACL Monthly Regional events.

Please NO outside food or drink!

Let me know if you need a partner for doubles and I can try and pair you with one.

New Weekly League Competitions

Each week on Monday’s and Thursday’s there will be an optional competition at 6pm. It will be $5 and to start will only be available to the first 15 players that sign-up in person (no pre-registration).

Week #1 will be an 8-bag airmail competition.  Top 3 scores win cash prizes (Monday’s and Thursday’s are separate competitions).

Upcoming Tournament Dates!

The January date is very tentative, but the rest are pretty much set.  I suppose there is an outside chance they could change, but if you enjoy ACL Regionals you should add these to your calendar.

Also tentatively planning the Annual Dance Fundraiser for Saturday 1/6. Format would be the same as last year with tiered doubles (ex. top division would be a Premier has to play with a D2 level player or two D1 players can play together, and there would be 4 divisions).  Followed by 4-man crew event, 4 on 4, pitch 2 bags each like ACL Crew format with a “salary” cap for each team.  The 4-man format from last year simply took too long so have to change it.

Summer League Recap


Yes, We’re Moving…

Yes, some of you have heard rumors that we may be moving from Copper Stone and the rumors are true.  It’s official we are moving the league and many tournaments to St.Michael’s Gymnasium. Some of you have been there as we held 3 ACL Regionals there last year. It’s located in Broadview Heights Ohio right off of I-77 and Wallings (5025 Mill Rd, Broadview Heights, OH 44147).

I want to thank Copper Stone Event Center for hosting us for the past two years. Let me be clear that we are not leaving because of Copper Stone, they were absolutely top notch and we would love to return there for some events in the future. We are simply moving because the gym is bigger and in a better location.  If you ever need a spot for a party, work gathering or wedding perhaps, please consider Copper Stone.

I also want to thank Tracey for being our amazing bartender for the last 3 years. Unfortunately she won’t be able to move with us, but again, I hope maybe we will see her at future Copper Stone events or other cornhole events that may arise. Read More…
