The game of Cornhole has become a backyard favorite all around the country, becoming a weekend and holiday challenge for neighbors and friends. On Saturday, Sept. 17 the game will go uptown, taking over the Meals on Madison area in Port Clinton as a raucous fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Port Clinton.

Advance registration for the Walleye Toss, a local moniker for Cornhole, is $20, $25 day of the tournament. Enter early at Erie Shores Chiropractic, 113 Madison St., Port Clinton. More information is on the Rotary Club of Port Clinton Facebook Page.

Rotary President John Davenport expects some talented tossers to turn out for the chance to capture cornhole bragging rights for the summer season. All of sponsorship money and funds raised from merchandise sales will go directly to the Rotary Foundation.

Raising cold, hard cash is one of the best ways to fund many of the good works the local Rotary Club has put on its shoulders over the years. The Rotary Club’s Pizza Challenge has filled the Gideon Owen Winery in spring, and the Rotary Perch Wagon is a familiar sight at many local events, where Lake Erie yellow perch a local delight.

“The Walleye Toss is another way to bring together our Rotary Club volunteers for good causes,” said Davenport, “and a good way to recruit new Rotary members. We’re a bunch of fun folks, and we work hard to have a good time and to raise cash.”

The Walleye Toss will have the cornhole boards set up on Madison Street from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17. The youngsters will have first shot at scoring a win starting at 12:30 p.m., with the kids eyeing a $50 gift certificate from Sloopy’s Pizza in Port Clinton.

The adult tournament begins at 2 p.m., and the older folks are allowed to combine the two favorites of cornhole competition — pitching small sacks filled with hard corn at small holes in the boards and sipping a cold beverage.
