“We look forward to holding this tournament each year during the SC Pecan Festival. It’s put us on the map with the American Cornhole Association,” said Holly Beaumier, director of Florence Convention and Visitors Center.

Join more than 50,000 visitors in a day of fun with live entertainment, over 250 food and craft vendors, car show and competition, Kids Zone and much more. Bring the family for a day of fun and top it off with a special ACO Cornhole Tournament – the ACO Pecan Classic III.

“The Pecan Festival is a great place to run a cornhole tournament. This is our third trip back and each year tops the last,” said Frank Geers, president of ACO.

This year, the cornhole tournament will be held on Irby Street, midway between Evans Street and the main stage. This is a Doubles Play Format for the ACO Pecan Classic with Open Play Cornhole Tournaments in between. Check-in and open play starts at 10 a.m. and runs till noon. At noon, the Pecan Classic III will begin. Following the tournament, open play will be available again for those interested.

Sign up early. With a 100 team limit, you will not want to miss out on the fun. The cornhole tournament entry fee is $40 in advance, $60 at the door if space is available.

Pecan Classic Tournament is a Single Game Double Elimination Tournament – with final details based on participation. ACO membership is not required.

Prizes include $1,500 cash as well as entries into the July 2017 World Slyder Cup and hotel night stay during ACO Worlds XII.
