American Cornhole completed its first ever, ACO Go the Distance Festival at the Field of Dreams Movie Site just weeks after the Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs squared off for the Second MLB Field of Dreams Baseball Game in August of 2022.
For a number of years The Field of Dreams Movie Site Organization and the American Cornhole Organization, the ACO, wanted to bring these two favorite sports pastimes together. The goal was accomplished the weekend of August 26-28, 2022.
The Inaugural ACO Go the Distance Festival was a three-day cornhole tournament extravaganza featuring; singles and doubles tournament competition; The ACO Corny Forty Classic Invitational and the ACO Dream Team Invitational.
Friday and Saturday August 26-27, featured four doubles qualifier rounds, with the top six teams of each qualifier advancing to the Sunday ACO Dream Team Invitational final bracket.
The qualifier rounds were open to the public for participation to determine who would play on Sunday in the Big Red Barn at the Field of Dreams Movie Site location. The Inaugural ACO Dream Team Invitational Championship would be up for grabs.
Players young and old from distances near and far in Iowa and a number of surrounding States sought out the Festival to test their ability in this popular Tailgating sport.
ACO Cornhole and the Field of Dreams Movie Site had built the Go the Distance Festival and they did come.
