You play it at tailgate parties. You play it while waiting to be seated at restaurants. You may have even tossed a few bean bags at a K104.7 event. Cornhole has become an extremely popular pastime for those of us without any discernible athletic abilities. OK, it does require some balance, coordination, and accuracy, especially when you play with a beer in one hand. If you think you have the right stuff, you can sign up to throw with the best.

The American Cornhole Organization (ACO)
is bringing its national tournament to Cabarrus Arena & Events Center in Concord November 3rd and 4th. In fact, the ACO’s 13th season will visit 17 cities in 15 states. Players from beginners to pro level are encouraged to compete and admission to the Concord event is free for spectators.
