Red Neck Olympics

Yuma, Arizona            High 86 Low 58

It finally got hot here in Yuma. Everyone said it was an unusually cold winter.

Tom Wells, another member of our Park who is always thinking of things to keep us occupied, came up with red neck Olympics. There were 8 teams with different tasks for each team to be in charge of

Toms' Red Neck Cell Phone.

One team had a thing where they had to shave all the shaving cream off a balloon. Very few didn't break the balloon and get doused with shaving cream. Two or three players from each team participated in each event.

Out team had a seed spitting contest. We couldn't find any cherries at this time of year so we substituted grapes.

Notice my rope belt and suspenders.

This one rolled a frozen turkey at the bowling(?) pins.

One team had to throw bean bags through their legs (the corn hole game, but backwards).

Another team played golf with tennis balls with a stick with tennis balls on the end.

The last event was a boat made of empty plastic bottles held together with duct tape using kitty litter scoops taped to a stick for paddles.

This is our teams boat.

After the final event different awards were given out.

There were snacks and moonshine at each of the events. And of coarse napkins provided.

They had a large turn-out and everyone seemed to have had fun either participating or watching. 

Thanks for visiting.


  1. What a fun time keeping your guys busy and finally enjoying some hot weather.

  2. How fun was that!!!! Your boat looked really good ... the perfect example of ingenuity!!
