Buffalo Chip Toss World Champions From Fort Collins
Considering that I toss pooh from 6 horses every day, it wouldn’t really be fair of me to compete in this event, but two residents from Fort Collins did and won the 37th annual World Championship Buffalo Chip Toss in Chadron, Nebraska on Saturday during the Fur Trade Days celebration.
According to The Panhandle Post, Charley Teal threw a buffalo chip 103-feet 6-inches to win the men’s 18-and-older competition. Crystal Ford won for female division with a toss of 62-feet 7-inches.
The individual competition record for the competition is 186-feet 7-inches, set by Gary Lackey of Detroit Lakes, Minn., in 2000. Read more in the Denver Post.
