We encourage all players in the ACF National 11-man Ballot tournament to participate in the Illinois State Tournament. After finishing in Branson you can drive to the Illinois tournament in about 5 hours. You can make a whole week by playing in both tournaments. The 11-man ends on Friday, March 31 the Illinois tourney begins the next morning on April 1.
