Registration for the 2018 ACL Championships is NOW OPEN!

Cornhole players, registration for the 2018 ACL Championships is now open! It’s estimated that OVER $70,000 will be paid out in Cherokee this year, but more importantly, this is an event like no other with almost 30 different tournaments being held over the 5 days!

IMPORTANT – You must pre-register for any event you want to participate in (except for the Big Blind Draws,  Florida Blind Draws and Conference Cup). Each event does have a player cap, so don’t be left out! There may be a couple events that they will allow on-site registration for if they don’t sell out, but that’s not a guarantee and if allowed at all will cost double the price than what you pay if you pre-register.

All registration MUST be done through the ACL app on your phone or at https://app.iplayacl.com/

Additionally, there is $30,000 being given out for the Advanced Singles and Advanced Blind Draw. Unless you are playing in the Social division you will want to sign-up for Advanced Singles/Blind Draw where if you don’t make it out of Round 1 you automatically get put into Competitive Singles and Competitive Blind draw which are offering $1,000 per tournament in prize money.  Nobody will be allowed to sign-up directly for the Competitive Singles or Competitive Blind Draw, you must sign-up for Advanced Singles.

*Important – if you’ve ever played in an ACL event you have a login for their site.  If you don’t know what it is, please contact me and I will try and get it for you. Please do NOT create a new account as that would mean you’ll have more than one ACL account which is a bit of a pain to get fixed.  Additionally, if you are going to Cherokee and are not an ACL member, please sign-up for an ACL membership through me. By doing this you will save a ton of money on your entry fees at Cherokee and you will be a member through July 2019.

I think that’s all for now. If you have questions, please email me at ClevelandCornhole@att.net or text/call me at 440.570.5701

The Value of ACL Points

I have been asked several times lately why ACL points are important, so I put this document together. I realize ACL points are only important to some of our local players, but they certainly do mean something. Below is a link to a document that highlights the importance of ACL points.

*Note – not shown in this document is that last year many of our local players earned ACL Elite status by finishing top 64. All of those players were offered a contract from the ACL and many signed it. Because of this, 6 of our local players have been invited to Coney Island for the Pro Invitational event on July 4th which will be shown on ESPN/2! Congrats to those players. While finishing top 64 certainly does not guarantee you will get to play in that event next year, it does mean that it COULD happen…

THE VALUE OF ACL POINTS

ACL College is Expanding!

Are you a college student or do you know a college student who enjoys playing cornhole?

ACL College is expanding for the 2018 year!  Last year ACL College ran events at all of the SEC schools and had the winners head to the SEC Championship Game (Football) to play to see which school had the best cornhole players. These teams battled it out on ESPN3 and ESPNU and the same (or similar) is expected again this year with thousands of dollars up for grabs in scholarship money.

This year ACL College is expanding! Any college can be eligible to qualify a team for this years competition which will be held over two days (Dec 28-31, exact dates not set yet) in Myrtle Beach South Carolina.

Exact details have not yet been released, but you can get started now at your school or plan for Fall of 2018 by contacting the ACL and telling them you’re ready to get your school on board with Cornhole!
