More about the contest:
Each player will toss a clamshell about 25 feet towards a small hole in the sand, attempting to sink the clamshell in the hole. Shells are provided but kids can bring their own lucky clamshells if they have them. There are trophies for all winners and runners-up in singles and doubles competition.
