Due to the current conditions regarding large gatherings, the uncertainty of attendance, and in the spirit of safeguarding everyone's good health...It is with a Very Heavy Heart that we have decided that this year's tournament will be cancelled.
However, our family will still be going to the Winery on Friday the 7th to enjoy horseshoes , pizza and celebration. Anyone that wants to join us is most welcome! We will miss the familiar faces and memories we've made. It is our intention to resume the tournament next summer and we really hope you will join us!! Be well everyone!
I will leave all of the verbiage below so that, if you are new here, you will have a snapshot of our Tournament.
Thank you for your interest! Last year's Justin Tournament was a big success. We are proud to say that we were able to donate $1400 to Mike Ball and his Lost Voices Organization!
We are so grateful to everyone who participated! Now it's time to plan 2020's event :)
While this Tournament, named after Justin Antio, is a day to remember, it is far from a memorial! Justin's family has found a way to make something good & positive from a tragic event. Please join us and enjoy the day!
It does not matter if you have never thrown a horseshoe in your life or if your a pro. This day is just a lot of fun, being in the sunshine and meeting new friends.
The Justin Tournament is now in its 12th year. The participants and the people of Kelleys Island have been an amazing support.
Our hearts are grateful and our desire now is to honor Justin's memory by finding ways to pay it forward.
The Justin has partnered in supporting Lost Voices. For more than eleven years, the professional folk and blues musicians of Lost Voices have been helping kids who have experienced major emotional trauma; such as abuse, neglect, violence, addiction, and human trafficking; find hope and healing through music.
