Go ahead and vote for your favorite ACL Pros to make it to the Pro Invitational on July 5 at National #4. Four teams will be voted in and join the other eight teams who have qualified for a spot.

The $25,000 All Forces Championships are on August 8-10 as part of the ACL Championships (Aug 6-11) in Valley Forge, PA.

I have gotten several questions on the event and how to qualify. You can either buy in directly for $250/team or I can run a qualifier. A couple of things to note if you would like to participate in a qualifier:

1. Anyone who participates in a qualifier should also be planning to go to Valley Forge, PA in August to compete. No point playing in the qualifier if you aren't going to attend the Championships.

2. For local players, I would need six teams minimum in order to run a qualifier. The qualifier could be held at either the Conference Event on June 22-23 or at my Crazy Cash Co****le event on July 13. I should be able to give out one qualifier for every six teams that enter.

3. A valid military ID or DD-214 will be required for verification of eligibility for military divisions. A badge, ID card, or documentation with letterhead from the last active place of employment within the specific public safety division will be required for verification of eligibility in all other divisions.

4. If you qualify, you get five games guaranteed in the All Forces event on 8/8 & 8/9 and then an additional two games for the All Forces Blind Draw on 8/10.

5. You can read full details here - https://www.iplayacl.com/news-media/92.

This reporter has been following KB Kornhole since almost the beginning back in 2015. Here's her latest article on the launch of Hole 9 Yards.


The article was also picked up in the SanTan Sun News (https://santansun.com/2022/10/15/ev-is-home-to-nations-first-indoor-co****le-venue/) and the East Valley Tribune - https://www.eastvalleytribune.com/mesa-man-realizes-dream-with-indoor-co****le-venue/article_d9ad396a-aec7-502d-bbb2-292b6a6090ac.html

First indoor co****le venue opens in EV Two weeks may not sound like a long time, but when Gilbert’s Hole 9 Yards owners had plans in place for a festive grand opening on Sept. 16, supply-chain issues



In case you missed it earlier in the season, the Arizona State rankings will be calculated a bit different this year. Instead of the state rankings just being a duplicate of the Open rankings, the state rankings only take into account certain events:

1) Your top 15 local events (singles and/or doubles)
2) Your top 6 regional singles and top 6 regional doubles (blind draw or BYOP)
3) Your state championship results for singles and doubles

I haven't usually offered a blind draw regional in the past, mainly because of space and time. We now have both so there will be a Regional Blind Draw each month along with the normal BYOP. You keep the best finish of each month (example: 3rd place in BYOP and 2nd place in Blind Draw = keep the 2nd place finish)

Check your rankings at https://www.iplayacl.com/acl-standings or in the ACL Player app. Top 32 at the end of the season earn a spot in the Arizona Copper Club.

Of course, for those who are not interested in the points, our events are structured so that anyone can play, whether you want the points are not.


Who wants to watch a 45 year old man get chased around by other very large men on one of H9Y's 36 TVs? Ravens play Buccaneers on TNF tomorrow night!

Oh yeah...and we have our first ACL Singles Regional of the season! Four divisions and all four have already meet the minimum size requirement so each division is a GO! Don't fret! Regionals won't typically be on Thursday nights we just ran out of weekends with the delayed opening, the other regional events and the Rocky Point event.

40+ players already pre-registered. We will try to get in a 3 game round robin for each division to seed into a double elimination tournament. Save time and skip the line by registering at https://app.iplayacl.com/find-events/3009/type/reg.

Gold and Platinum members get a $10 discount PLUS no transaction fees when loading the digital wallet.


A modest but important group kicking off our H9Y leagues this past Monday! The female talent in AZ has exploded over the past few years and the future is bright! Melissa and Renee with an impressive 6-0 record to start the season.

No women's league next Monday (Halloween) but there will be a blind draw for anyone who wants to come in. We're still taking women's teams so there's a few weeks left to decide before we kick back off with Week #2 on 11/7.

*Note: I understand Monday is not convenient for those on the West side. Drop a comment and let us know when you could make it? Maybe a Saturday or Sunday women's league after the new year?


Always fun promoting the sport to the mainstream. Thank you to Gina Ramirez, Nicole Kangas, Patricia Kier, Jeff Kangas and Kier for making the trip to take part in the news segment.


👀 The updated Bert Adams Trophy, now including the South Region and the 2021 winner. We are going to need a smaller font when the North is ready to go (next year?).

Is this the year that East gets dethroned? Who do you got?

Remember that it’s limited to 32 teams per region during the pre-registration period. East is full but if spots are unclaimed by West and South then those spots will be available to all regions on a first come basis Saturday morning.

Doors open at 9. Bags fly at 10:30. All details can be found at http://kbkornhole.com/evwvs.
