The folks on the ACL tournaments are just amazing to watch.
I would agree, anyone can play... that’s part of the attraction for so many. Their are no advantages in this game... short, tall, old, young, male, female... doesn’t matter.

Where have you been? I had to work late... Oh these? Yeah, it was 'camo day' at work again .

I proceeded to whoop up on him pretty bad but to be fair, he never had a set of boards (and I am not a very good player by any stretch). He was glad to run the white flag up the pole when the sun went down..... 🙂 Then, we proceeded to drink plenty of yeungling from his tap sitting around the campfire....
That’s a sweet bday present for sure 👍

He hollered that he'd found something. Figured he was up to something?

A cornhole tournament on ESPN. Told him what was an improvement over ESPN's poker tournaments, or pool tournaments, unless the pool shooters are babes?

I seldom participate, but that's been a big deal at our Potter clan reunions for years and when our club hosts weekend archery shoots, same thing.
Who would of thought... cornhole on ESPN!!
And to think, almost 800 players showed up at St Louis that weekend.

In August the ACL and ESPN will host the ACL Championships at the Valley Forge Casino.

My son will be playing in the junior division... he’s a pretty good thrower. 2nd junior in the PA state championships last year and him and I got 4th in PA State doubles.

I think that's quite an achievement there Peppy! Congrats to you and son. It amazes me how some days you can't do a darn thing right, and another game you get hot and can't hardly miss.
I gotta admit though, my first love was horseshoes, but since corn hole became so popular, no one wants to throw the shoes much, They couldn't usually top me in horseshoes, but they have better luck with corn hole LOL.

Thanks Denny.

And you’re right, one night lights out and the next you just can’t find the ‘zone’.

Cornhole is a bit easier to play and you can play about anywhere, including inside... I think that’s a big part of the attraction. Everything is portable. 👍
