Turkey Bowling and Frozen T-Shirt Contest with Zeb and Eider Duck

We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks and humans, are still in Nederland, Colorado for the Frozen Dead Guy Days festival.   This is a great festival!   Now it time for the frozen turkey bowling.   Starting with a wrapped, frozen turkey, fresh from the store, humans throw, or slide the turkey down the snowy path, trying to knock down bowling pins.   Sounds easy enough, but the humans sure do make a mess with this.   This man is ready to bowl.

He is ready

Now, the turkey wrapper has come off the turkey.   The warm weather is helping the turkey to thaw.  The turkey is thrown and then slides into the bowling pins.

Good job!   Younger humans throw the frozen chicken at the pins.   He is ready to throw the chicken toward the pins.

This lady is brave.

Nice polish

Humans get a little crazy here.   We like frozen turkey bowling.

It is time for the frozen t-shirt contests.   The men try first.   For this contest a new, folded t-shirt is soaked in water and then put in the freezer.   The contestants start with t-shirts in a bag and on the ground.

Get your shirt

To open the shirt and put it on, only your own body and the ground may be used.

Harder than it looks

It is really difficult to open, unfold and put on a frozen t-shirt. We are seeing some progress,

Almost!

but still more work to do.   The very cold t-shirt is now on.

It is on

Lots of cold fun here!

Let’s see how the women do in their frozen t-shirt contest.   Difficult for them to get packages open.

She is the winner of the woman’s frozen t-shirt contest.   This woman, wearing gloves, gets her frozen t-shirt on also.   Another winner.

Love the gloves

This is a great festival.   We really hope you can visit the Frozen Dead Guy Days in Nederland, Colorado next March.
