Coloradoans win buffalo chip toss competition
CHADRON, Neb. (AP) _ A Colorado man has won the men's championship at the annual World Championship Buffalo Chip Toss at the Fur Trade Days event in Chadron.
The Panhandle Post website for station KQSK says 27-year-old Charley Teal of Fort Collins, Colo., threw a piece of dried bison dung 103 feet, 6 inches on Saturday to win the male 18-and-older competition.
His throw was well short of the world record of nearly 187 feet set in 2000.
The women's crown for those 18 and older was claimed by 39-year old Crystal Ford, of Fort Collins, Colo., who tossed a chip 62 feet, 7 inches.
