[Youth practice for the tomahawk rhrow. Tim Hill of Greenville, Mo., eyes up the tree round target. He's followed by Casey Balleger of Atlanta and Josh Jefferson of Roanoke, Ky. Tim, who won the rail split for his age earlier Saturday, is here with other family members. The family has been coming for about 15 years. His dad, Larry, is a champion rail-splitter also competing in water boil, team rail split, log roll and crosscut. Brother Jason came to compete in team rail split. Mom, Brenda, participated in water boil, wood chop and cross cut.]

[The Hoppin watermelon contest]

[Numerous churches signed up for rocking teams which raised funds for the Crisis Pregnancy Center. A large number of businesses and restaurants from the area supplied food for the event. Nearly $4,500 was raised.]

["For the Lord" from Park Meadows Baptist Church entertained rockers and the crowd with barbershop-style music.  Pictured from left to right are Andrew Ball, Stephen Ball, Jon Tharp, Daniel Ball and Matt Tharp. Another member, not available to sing that day, was Andy Tharp.]
