The American Cornhole Organization (ACO) will host its inaugural ACO Oklahoma State Championships of Cornhole June 6 and 7, 2014 in Stillwater, OK.

The ACO State Championships of Cornhole is a new program launched by the American Cornhole Organization. Cornhole, also known as Indiana Horseshoes or Corn Toss is a competitive sporting event gaining popularity nationally.

Its US roots are believed to stem from Kentucky over a century ago and is played similarly to horseshoes using corn bags and a wooden box target.

“With over 20 states already represented in the American Cornhole Organization, we are excited to bring this unique and widely competitive event to Stillwater,” says Cristy Morrison, Visit Stillwater’s Executive Director.

The event will be a fun-filled weekend featuring game challenges, Luck of the Draw tournaments, food, music and more. The Luck of the Draw tournaments and game challenges are pay-as-you-go activities, open to the public both Friday and Saturday and spectators are free and welcome to join in the fun.
 
Saturday will also include the Oklahoma Singles and Doubles Title tournaments. The Title tournaments are free of charge and open to all residents of Oklahoma who are active ACO Members. ACO Memberships are $20 per season and are available easily online at www.AmericanCornhole.com.

Participation is limited to the first 160 singles players and 160 doubles so timely registration is encouraged. 
 
“We’re extremely excited to have launched our State Championships Program and believe that Stillwater, Oklahoma is going to be a great host city for the event in 2014 and years to come,” says Frank Geers, President of American Cornhole, LLC.
 
It is the goal of the American Cornhole Organization to have an ACO State Championships of Cornhole in every state by Season X, June 2015. Currently, nineteen states have committed to hosting the state championships for season IX with several others close behind for the June 2014 competitions.

“In addition to being crowned Oklahoma State Champions, the titles will also carry a lot of weight heading into the ACO World Championships of Cornhole,” says Eric Hinerman, Director of Certified Officials for the ACO.

“These State Champions will have the opportunity to come to the ACO World Championships of Cornhole, and in some cases, be the very first players from their states to represent in the King of Cornhole and World Doubles final brackets. It gives competitors a shot at the biggest titles in the Cornhole World,” Hinerman further explains.
