Ability Center to host Emergency Services Olympics on Saturday

The Ability Center will be hosting The Ottawa County Emergency Services Olympics on Saturday, Jan. 11, from 1-3 p.m. at the Sutton Center in Port Clinton. The Olympics is a series of competitions among 14 Port Clinton-area Fire/EMS and Police Departments. This is the fourth year for the event, which has featured contests in Uno, air rifle, basketball shooting, taco eating and Quiz Bowl. 

This year the Olympics will kick off with a Wheelchair Obstacle Course hosted by the Ability Center of Ottawa County office. Each participant will roll through a series of obstacles while using a manual wheelchair. Some of the obstacles the EMS/Fire and Police contestants will face this Saturday include corn-hole toss, limbo, drinking from a drinking fountain and opening doors. 

Common Grounds will be providing refreshments and Sutton Center Properties is providing the use of the facilities.  

The public is invited to see the action, cheer on the participants, and, after the event, to take a whirl at the obstacle course.
