The Jefferson-Switzerland County Special Olympics team will compete in its annual bowling tournament at Clarksville this weekend.

The tournament at Blackiston Bowl will pit local Special Olympic athletes against those from surrounding counties. The local Special Olympic team has about 50 athletes of all ages, said organizer Lori Palmer, a special education teacher for Madison Consolidated Schools.

The group meets Saturday at Madison Consolidated High School and leaves at 10 a.m. They plan to return at 5 p.m. The tournament begins at 12:30 p.m. No registration fee is required.

The bowling event is the group's fall and winter competition. The other competitions are held in the spring.
