Manure Pitch Contests in the Harry S. Truman Games Area
On Saturday and Sunday, the Harry S. Truman Games feature two Manure Pitch contests, one for distance and the other for accuracy. Participation is limited, so sign up early on the day of the contest if you want to compete. Come by if you want to cheer.
The One-Toss Distance Contest is held at 10:00 a.m. and the 25-pound Accuracy Pitch Contest takes place at 2:00 p.m.
Each contest is a competition with three age classes: 12 and under; 13 to 17; and 18 and over.
Contestants in each class will receive ribbons for first, second or third place. The first place winner in each class will also receive an organic cotton Common Ground Country Fair T-shirt.
Both contests are limited to 12 contestants per class. Sign up for the distance toss at 9:30 a.m. and for the 25-pound accuracy pitch at 1:30 p.m.
The Harry S. Truman Games Area is adjacent to the Composting and Recycling Tent.
