Harry S. Truman Games

The Harry S. Truman Games feature a Manure Pitch on Saturday and a Horseshoe Pitch on Sunday.

On Saturday, the Manure Pitch features two events: the one-toss distance event in the morning and the 25-pound accuracy pitch in the afternoon.

Each contest in the Manure Pitch is a competition with three age classes: 12 and under; 13 to 17; and 18 and over. Contestants in each class will receive ribbons for first, second or third place. The first place winner in each class will also receive an organic cotton Common Ground Country Fair T-shirt.

Both contests are limited to 12 contestants per class. Sign up for the distance toss at 9:30 a.m. and for the 25-pound accuracy pitch is 1:30 p.m.

The Open Horseshoe Pitch will take place on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. This event is limited to 16 contestants over 18 years old. Ribbons will be awarded for the first four places, and the overall winner will receive an organic cotton Common Ground Country Fair T-shir.

All Harry S. Truman Games are held in the Harry S. Truman Games Area (HST on the Fair map) adjacent to the Composting and Recycling Tent.

Take your pick, shoes or sh-manure, but sign up and take part in this year's Harry S. Truman Games.
