Axes Up: Fonthill Legion Fundraiser
August 21 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Hey everybody. Who misses the fun of league night? Us too. This is why we found a cause to support with a tournament!
The Fonthill legion is not only the best place to play shuffle board and have an icy cold OV. This Legion has made a name for its self by providing meals at no charge to those in need. To put his into perspective, since the Covid lockdown started in March of 2020 they and their awesome volunteers have served 14,000 meals to people in the area that aren’t able to get their own groceries or meals. Even winning a Niagara Region Impact Award for the extensive community impact of preparing and delivering over 14,000 meals, free of charge, to individuals who were housebound due to the ongoing pandemic. https://www.niagararegion.ca/news/article.aspx?news=1243
Last year we were able to raise enough money to get the get the kitchen repairs that were needed to keep this program going. This year we are holding the event to keep it funded as we get our way out of this covid mess. It’s time for the Niagara Community to step up to the axe throwing target and show the Fonthill Legion that we appreciate and support the work they have done for us.

There will be 2 Tournaments this year, one for experienced throwers, and one for those new to the sport.
This tournament will run currently established rules. Bull = 5 points, the next ring is 3 points, and furthest ring is 1 point. The green dots open on the 5th axe and are worth 7 points. Matches will be best 2 out of 3 till the finals which will be best 5 out of 7. Board changes will be at the discretion of tourney marshals. Devices will be used by a marshal if there is a question on points. Finally the marshal’s have final say on any disagreement on points.
This will be a basic A bracket and B bracket tournament. So every player is guaranteed warm up time, and 2 games with entrance. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd placings. Everyone else gets the warm and fuzzy feeling of doing some good in the world.
