The hay bale throwing contest will take place at 6:30 p.m., Friday of the fair. Pre-registration starts at 6 p.m. There is a $1 entry fee

The premise is simple. Take a bale of hay and see how far you can toss it. Techniques vary.

Classes are divided by gender and age: 9 years old and under, 10 to 14 years old, 15 to 20 years old and 21 and over. cash and prizes are awarded for the top finishers. Usually at least some members of the fair court also give the contest a heave.

The contest is sponsored by Slades Corners Lucky Clovers 4-H Club. Medallions are sponsored  by Farm Bureau and John Squire.

The Kenosha County Fair runs this year from Aug. 19 through 23, at the Fairgrounds in Wilmot.
