The goal of this, and any event that we direct, is to offer an inviting and competitive setting with multiple levels so that you can have the most fun competing against players/teams of similar talent level. We do our best to guide players/teams to the correct division but we do not know everyone and there will be a range of players in each division. We also try to discourage "sand bagging" by offering the biggest prizes to the top levels and most talented players.
If you aren't sure which division is best for you then go out in the backyard a throw a few Dekarounds (after you've warmed up). A Dekaround is when you throw four bags on an open board and then count up your points for that round (0-12pts). Do that 10 times and total your score. The highest score you can reach is 120pts.
Tier 1 Beginner (ACL Backyard)
This division is for players who are new to the game or play in their backyard. If we know you then this likely isn't the division for you. If you know a local bar or venue where you can play a weekly blind draw then this isn't the division for you. ACL Backyard level points are awarded for players/teams who compete at this level. Dekaround score of 0-50pts.
Tier 2 Developing (ACL Social)
This division is designed for players who have started to play regularly/competitively and have the occasional moments of brilliance followed by rounds of inaccuracy. Players at this level play frequently either with friends or at the local weekly blind draw. ACL Social level points are awarded for players/teams who compete at this level. Dekaround score of 51-70pts.
Tier 3 Competitive
If you're competing at this level then you are likely playing at least once per week, if not more, in a competitive event. It's a good probability that you've played in a regional, conference or national event. Players at this level are talented and know how they stack up against other players. ACL Competitive level points are awarded for players/teams who compete at this level. Dekaround score of 71-90pts.
Tier 4 Advanced
The best players in the state are competing in this division. Players/teams competing in this division are playing for the biggest payouts and the title of the best player/team in the state! Nothing more needs to be said. ACL Advanced level points are awarded for players/teams who compete at this level. Dekaround score of 91-120pts.
