Lennox chosen to host State Cornhole Tournament

South Dakota Cornhole has announced that the group’s 2024 State Tournament will be held in Lennox at the new Prosper Country Warehouse & Event Hall just east of town. Scheduled for February 9th and 10th, the state tournament attracts dozens of players looking to put their skills to the test.

“The state tournament usually sees around fifty teams compete, or one hundred players total,” said Tyler Earls, the organizer of the event. “Teams can enter into one of three divisions based on skill level—open, intermediate, or competitive—which helps attract casual players who maybe have only played in their backyard or on a camping trip.”

Earls, who hails from Mitchell, has organized the event for the past four years. Like many others, he was first drawn into the cornhole community by the state tournament.

“I heard about the state tournament one year and decided to give it a try,” Earls said. “You get to meet players from all over South Dakota, and you find out that it’s not much different from playing with family or friends on weekends or vacations. There’s many local cornhole groups across the state that organize tournaments and leagues throughout the year that you can get involved with.”

Since Earls took over the state tournament, the event has changed locations in an effort to attract the greatest number of participants. The past three tournaments were held in Chamberlain, Pierre, and Deadwood. 2024 will be the first time that Earls will hold the event in the Sioux Falls area.

 “It is difficult to find a venue that is big enough to fit the number of courts we need for the state tournament,” he said. “My fiancé and I discovered Prosper Country Warehouse & Event Hall after seeing an ad for another cornhole tournament being held there. We were very excited when we came and saw that the space was big enough. We’re blessed to have found Prosper and we’re excited to work with them on the tournament.”

Anyone interested in participating in the state tournament can find more information including entry fees, tournament formats, and more on Prosper Country Warehouse & Event Hall’s Facebook page. You can register for the tournament at the American Cornhole League’s website, iplaycornhole.com.
