Redneck Horseshoes..

Real rednecks don’t use horseshoes! They use toilet seats! Do you think you can throw a ringer? This one is going to be a real hoot!..

.. Grapefruiit Seed Spitting Contest ..

..Now how could an Olympics be complete without this event? Each redneck athlete will be asked to “bob” for a grapefruit from a toilet bowl! Don’t worry – the toilet will be a never used model! The athlete will then spit the seeds through a hoop and into a drum to be counted. Style is everything in this event..

..Log Rolling Contest..

..This contest is no hands on! One way or another..but without using their hands..the redneck athletes competing in this contest need to roll their log across the frozen river and into a small opening at the finish line..

Corn Shucking Contest

This is a timed event. Each Redneck Athlete will be given 3 dried ears of corn..The first athlete to shuck the kernels off of all three ears just might be a Redneck Olympic winner..
