American Cornhole Organization and the Pettit National Ice Center are teaming up to bring one big cornhole party to Milwaukee, WI. Known as the Brew City Bags Bash the Pettit Center will be party central on April 16th, 17th, and 18th as bags fly.
Some call the game bags, some call it cornhole but all call it fun. Players pitch 4 corn filled bags at an inverted board with a 6" hole cutout about 30' distance trying to outscore each other. If this sounds like fun head on over to the Pettit National Ice Center April 16-18 and play or watch.
The mission is to fill the Ice Center with players and fans with sights on proclaiming the biggest and best indoor cornhole extravaganza in the world.
"The Brew City Bags Bash is Milwaukee’s first ever ACO event and we look forward to welcoming the Cornhole Pros to our city and facility, along with the competitive, recreational and charity players from across the Midwest. Between all of the players and the spectators we hope to attract, we are going to have one heck of a party at the Pettit April 16-18," said Kevin Butler of the Pettit National Ice Center.
The Brew City Bags Bash will be packed with a variety of activities for participants and fans. It will include a series of recreational cornhole, charity and ACO Pro tournaments and games. Also featured in the inaugural event will be a Pro/AM tournament and live music from the ACO touring band, Mays Gone.
The recreational cornhole, some call it bags, tournaments are open for anyone interested in getting out for the weekend and playing for fun. There are three potential tournaments available to recreational players over the weekend-long event.
In addition watch for Free as the Pros compete on one of the estimated 70 to 80 courts on the foot print of the Olympic speed skating oval. The Oval comes out for a few months annually on April 1st and this in itself is an opportunity to experience Olympic surroundings.
This event will also host a charity tournament and game challenges benefiting Autism Speaks, Ronald McDonald House of Eastern Wisconsin and Wisconsin Humane Society. This is a wonderful way to provide a helping hand by playing in a tournament and giving to organizations in need of funds to help our communities.
