I don't even know where to begin with this post.... so I guess I'll start at the beginning.
Ott, E and I went to Wisconsin for Labor Day weekend to visit his family. We were going to go to his hometown's festival parade, grill out, visit with the relatives and then stop by the festival. His hometown (Sauk City, Wisconsin) hosts this festival and contest every year on Labor Day. What kind of a festival you ask??? .....a cow chip festival with the state's cow chip throwing contest.
Well now your probably asking how did I get entered into this contest? I was sitting at Ott, E's parents house minding my own business when his uncle called and said he was going to sign me up to be in the contest. At first I declined, but then when I found out his mother, aunt and cousin were going to compete I figured I'd at least be in good company, I'm mean... when in Rome.... (I still didn't know for sure what I was getting myself into.)
Now my first instinct to throwing this cow chip was to throw it like a Frisbee, but what I learned was that the winners throw their cow chips overhand. Each entrant gets two chips to throw and the farthest throw is the one that is recorded. So for your cow chip viewing pleasure, below is video of my attempt along with Ott, E's relatives.
