Man throwing axe

Are you looking to release your inner lumberjack and benefit Moraine Park students? Then The Ledge Games is just the event for you.

On Saturday, September 25, you’ll see plenty of beards and flannel at this family-friendly competition held at Red Cabin at Green Acres in Eden. One hundred percent of event proceeds support The Ledge Games scholarship, established through the Moraine Park Foundation, which focuses on engineering, manufacturing, and technology programs at Moraine Park.

Wannabe lumberjacks compete in caber toss, hammer toss, archery, keg toss, speed chop and axe throwing.  Competition divisions include men, women and a 55+ age group. Spectators are also welcome to come and cheer on their friends and family members.

The event, co-founded in 2014 by Josh Michels of Fond du Lac and Tyler Oestreich of Eden, has generated over $34,000 in scholarships for aspiring students.
