Beachgoers are getting the chance to participate in one of the Jersey shore's oldest pastimes: clamshell pitching.

At the Beach Shack in Cape May, guests can enjoy Clam-A-Rama, a daylong event honoring the game of clamshell pitching and the tasty seafood and drink specials to go with it.

The clamshell pitching tournament will take place 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in front of the Beach Shack on Saturday, May 19. The winner of the tournament, which includes round robin and single elimination rounds, will receive an overnight stay at the Beach Shack.

The $20 registration fee for this rain-or-shine event covers an official tournament T-shirt.

The ultra-competitive also can take part in the "Dig It" promotion. Special Beach Shack shells will be hidden around the beach all summer. Anyone who comes across one will receive prizes including overnight accommodations, gift certificates and more.

To celebrate Clam-A-Rama, the Rusty Nail will feature clam and drink specials and live entertainment by the Banana Trio.
