Louisville, KY – The American Cornhole Organization announces a partnership with Early Times Kentucky Whisky where Early Times becomes the “Official Spirits Sponsor of the ACO”.

In the agreement, the ACO will help Early Times promote its Early Times Man Day platform throughout all events across the country, which culminate with the ACO World Championships of Cornhole. Select events throughout the American Cornhole circuit of tournaments will include both Early Times Man Day competitions and ACO sanctioned cornhole tournaments. These selected events will be leveraged as qualifying events into the ACO World Championships of Cornhole VI, held January 5-8, 2012 in Tunica, Mississippi.

“The Early Times relationship ties in nicely with the ACO and our events planned all around the country,” said Frank Geers, president of the ACO. “The Early Times Man Games are all about fun and we can certainly identify with that.”
Early Times secures the “Official and Exclusive Spirits” sponsorship of the ACO through 2014. At the ACO World Championships of Cornhole VI in January, there will be an Early Times Man Day Zone featuring Man Games competitions.

“Early Times is known as the ‘Workin Man’s Reward’ and the game of cornhole fits perfectly into that motto,” said Therese McGuire, Early Times brand manager. “We look forward to a long-term partnership with the ACO and to building a strong relationship in the years to come.”
