Lets talk Watermelon

Watermelon Contests Well, to have a simple one, you need watermelon of course, scales that measure ounces and one bowl for each contestant, weigh the watermelon slices and tag each with a little flag and weight. Then, after each contestant eats the watermelon, well, simply add up what they have eaten. To Win at a Watermelon Contest, the contestant needs to - Step 1   Develop a technique. The easiest way is also the messiest with no utensils, but there are still possibilities for success using a fork or spoon. Step 2  Swallow the seeds or chew them with your bite of watermelon. Spitting the seeds will cut into your eating time. Step 3  Make sure your hair is pulled back out of your face, if applicable. You don't want to be distracted from the task at hand. Step 4  Take lots of small bites you can swallow almost whole. Chewing is another factor that will hurt your eating time. Step 5  Eat fast and furious. At most contests, the competition is cutthroat. Step 6   Have fun and worry about the mess later. **************** [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_4Iq7iHlBc ************************************************************************** Try this link       Watermelon Carving made Easy!

Mutton Bustin’

Mutton Bustin' is an event held at rodeos similar to bull riding or bronc riding. It is the kid version of bull riding. Open to girls and boys, youngsters attempt to ride the unpredictable sheep for six seconds. During the event, a sheep will be caught and held still while a child is placed on top in a riding position. Once the child is seated atop the sheep, the people holding the sheep let go and the sheep then starts to run in an attempt to get the child off. It is an exciting event for the boys and girls who want to experience the excitement of what riding in a rodeo could be like. TChildren are on occasion injured by the sheep. Height and weight restrictions on participants generally prevent injuries to the sheep. Parents are often asked to sign waivers to protect the rodeo from legal action. ISafety of the children and the sheep is of course important. Proper gear helps and consists of a protective vest and a helmet. There is also an age restriction usually children age 4 to 9. There is also a weight restriction; children can weigh no more than of 55 lbs. Weight restictions protect the sheep. Mutton Bustin' has grown to be one of the most popular and entertaining extra attractions at the National Western Stock Show in Denver during January.Like the cowboy bucking events, time and score count, but all the contestants receive trophies from the sponsor EChildren get confidence from doing this event. Sometimes a cowboy or a rodeo clown helps with showing them how. The little cowboy or cowgirl learns the proper way to mount the sheep, and hold on for the six seconds or so the ride lasts. The child who holds on for that long without falling off and has a good ride is the winner. Mamas if you don't want your babies to grow up to be Cowboys, you best keep them away from Mutton Bustin'. Sure, it looks innocent enough, but does anybody really know how many Cowboys got THEIR first real taste of rodeo riding from a sheep? . I
