The ACO Hamilton Cornhole Cup – an ACO Masters Series Major – will have a $20,000 Purse Payout. The Tournament is scheduled for June 22 – 24th, 2012. It is the second of four Majors planned for the 2012 season.

In its inaugural year, the ACO Hamilton Cornhole Cup promises to attract cornhole players and enthusiasts from around Ohio and neighboring states. This event is open to cornhole players of all skill levels.

A player can enter the ACO Hamilton Cornhole Cup as a singles entrant, a doubles entrant, or a Crew – which is the best value. A Crew can enter the $20,000 ACO Hamilton Cornhole Cup challenge for $250 ($62.50 per Crew member). A Crew is given the opportunity to participate in all four cash payout events. These include: Luck of the Draw, Open Singles, Open Doubles, and Hamilton Cornhole Cup competition – a minimum of 8 guaranteed games for all Crew members.

The Crew competition is points-based concept developed exclusively by the ACO.

Re-live cornhole history. Watch the cornhole series where it all started.

Before the casinos, World Rankings, CornyForty, Masters Series and the World Championships of Cornhole. Before it all was a short-lived, local television series called the King of Cornhole. Created from the mind of Matt Gray in 2002 and based on the old King of TV Bowling series in Cincinnati, OH, Gray enlisted the help of Phill Daniel, Doug Hopkins and Chad Dillefeld to create cornhole history in 2006. Produced by Gamemasters Inc., the King of Cornhole television show was the first cornhole show in television history.

Years later, the ACO King of Cornhole has evolved to become the ultimate world championship in cornhole.

The ACO has re-released the videos on the ACO’s YouTube channel to celebrate its history and the impact the “Legacy Era” continues to make in the cornhole community. Enjoy matches with Matt Guy, Randy Atha, Michael Bailey and Chu Farfsing with commentary by Gil Flunkerton, Joe Fitzpatrick and Scott Yew.
