Saturday St. Pat's Games and Day Music

The St. Patrick's Day Games held just outside the Shamrock were attended by a large crowd of cheering people of many different age groups. It was definitely a winter day this year, not like the spring-like day last year. Fingers were bound to get frostbite if they were not kept inside one's gloves or mittens. Quite a few were not willing to come outside from the warm confines of the Shamrock and the Beachcomber, but the games went on with or without the help of those inside.

These kindly young ladies spent time planning and preparing. Our local university was represented.

Kids of all ages were present to particpate and cheer......Traditional dress was also present...

The special vehicle used for these games is definitely unique...There were other words used, but can't be printed....

The tires don't look that difficult, but they can be tricky...

The idea was to bounce a quarter into the pitcher and then do a shot of green beer. "Come on, Kyle."

The cooperative cross-country-ski on 2x4's was next to last....Then change outside garments to end.

Oh, no! I left my coat back there!!

Careful of that bottle.....The WINNERS!

Then on to one of the yearly favorites...The feathers fell from the sky as the sea gulls flew overhead in preparation for the

Fish Toss

The ladies were up first......

Then it was time for the manly men to try to hold onto the fish long enough to throw it.

Quite the competition....

Then came the Tug O' War

The traditional Fish Chokers versus the Hay Seeders in a tug of war was next on the agenda...

You're the one on the snow bank!
