Special to the Journal
Destination Brooks, The Quitman-Brooks County Tourism Project,
is looking for some strong, athletic glory-seekers to compete for a World
Record in Skillet Throwing at the 2013 Brooks County Skillet Festival.
At the festival, being held October 19 on the Brooks County Courthouse
Square, 6 people will compete for this esteemed record by throwing a cast
iron skillet as far as they possibly can. The one who throws for the
longest distance will be named the World Record holder and will enjoy
eternal fame and skillet glory!
Anyone, and we mean ANYONE, interested in qualifying must contact Lauren
Basford at a 229-263-9085 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 2.
There will be two preliminary heats held at local events in the coming
weeks. The top two finalists from each competition will compete at the
Skillet Festival final. There is an entry fee of $10.00 which will go
toward the cost of the World Record Attempt.
