                    Throwing Championship"® Contest

1. Two (2) chips per contestant. Chip thrown the farthest shall be the only one counted. If the chip breaks up in mid-air during the throw, the piece going the farthest will be counted (this does not mean the chip hits the ground and then breaks up).

4. Contestants must select their own chips from the wagon load provided by the B.S. Enterprises Committee. To alter or shape chips selected from the wagon in any way (except in the rare instance when a loose fragment may be removed and proved that the removal does not render the chip less than six (6) inches in diameter), subjects contestant to a twenty-five (25) foot penalty. Decision of the Chip Judge is final.
