PERSONAL COMMENTS

FRANK GEERS
“Year in and year we like to come to Owensboro because its in the heart of cornhole country for the ACO, it’s a great little river community. The convention space is wonderful, there’s a lot of restaurants around town, nice safe community for our players to walk around, so our players love coming here. We love coming here.”

KAREN ENGLISH
You get a place that’s centralized like Owensboro, you bring in people from everywhere, and everyone is so nice, but at the sometime we are pretty competitive, it’s great for everyone to come and join. Obviously, we have the largest major we have had in 3 or 4 years, right here in Owensboro.”

Results can be found on the ACO’s facebook page.
