Enjoy Red Neck Olympics at Forest Grove Legion

On Aug. 10, the Red Neck Olympics will take place at the Forest Grove Legion

On Aug. 10, the Red Neck Olympics will take place at the Forest Grove Legion, starting at 10 a.m.

This is a family event, so bring your children so everyone can participate in these wacky games. The games include Toilet Seat Horseshoes, Sunflower Spitting, Mud Pie Eating, Toilet Roll Relay and, of course, Pin the Tail on the Donkey.

There are a number of other games, but folks will have to come to the Legion and see for themselves. Prizes will be awarded for the winners of these games.

Legion president Jim Tindale says it will be a really fun day for everyone.

There will be hotdogs, hamburgers, pop and coffee for sale, and after lunch, the refreshment garden will open. Any money raised from the Red Neck Olympics will go towards repairs, bills and improvements at the Legion.

When the Olympics finish at 4 p.m., the meat draw will take place, so feel free to stay and participate in this weekly event. The kitchen will also open at that time, so folks can order supper from the large menu. Legion cook Wayne Gilchrist is always happy to serve up a nice supper.

Folks who are up for another day of fun should head to Ruth Lake Park on Aug. 11 for the Red Neck Regatta. The boat building starts at 8 a.m. and the competitors will have until noon to finish their water craft. Judging for the best boat will take an hour and the boat race will go at 1 p.m. Come out and root for your favourite boat.
