This weekend, 64 teams are getting together for a cornhole tournament in Atascadero.

The tournament started Friday and will continue Saturday.

Event organizers with the Knights of Columbus and the local Kiwanis Club say they're expecting to collect about $5,000 from the tournament and half of that will be donated to the Atascadero High School robotics team.

“This year, they just won an international tournament in Houston, Texas. So, this is the third time this little team has been world champions. So, we're proud to be able to help them and support them,” said Mike Lopicolo, event coordinator.

The games start back up Saturday at the Sunken Gardens in downtown Atascadero.

Two-person team registration opens at 8 a.m.

The first toss starts at 9:30 a.m. and the finals go from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Teams that place first through fourth will play in the "A" bracket double elimination tournament for up to $2,000 in cash prizes.

Registration costs $100 per team.
