Team Members: Gatlin Howell, Rachel Landon, Aditya Srinivasan, Andrew Weaver

Project Description: The American Cornhole League (ACL) sets the equipment standards for the sport. As the sport evolves, so will the ACL Bag Policy. The current policy, has almost no limitations on the type of fabric that may be used. Typically, the bag will have a slick side (duck cloth) and a stick side (suede). The goal of this project is to identify a range of fabrics with different slickness and stickiness characteristics for use as a standardized bag. In doing so, the team will also establish a process to measure and evaluate (rate) the coefficient of friction (slickness or stickiness) of fabrics used with approved bags.
