Can't believe I missed the contest!

I gotta mark this on my calendar for next year...

And get some practice in!

CHADRON, Neb. (AP) — A 30-year-old Cheyenne, WY man is this year's buffalo chip-tossing champion.

Anthony Salaz threw a dried buffalo dropping 126-feet-1-inch on Saturday to win the World Championship Buffalo Chip Toss held in Chadron.

The event is part of Chadron's annual Fur Trade Days celebration.

Placing second was last year's winner: 25-year old Ryan Bohnenkamp of Omaha at 114-feet, 3 inches. Three-time world champion Ron Miller of Chadron placed third.

In the women's competition, 26-year-old Dayna Spencer of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, took the title.

The event has been running more than 20 years and organizers have said in the past that they have not heard of anywhere else having a buffalo chip throwing contest. And they say no one has challenged their claim that the event is the world championship.
