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.
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.
Chicken hits bowling pins.
This lady is brave.
She is ready to handle the unwrapped, partially thawed turkey. There goes the turkey. The weather is warm, but those are bare feet in the snow.
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.
To open the shirt and put it on, only your own body and the ground may be used.
It is really difficult to open, unfold and put on a frozen t-shirt. We are seeing some progress,
but still more work to do. The very cold t-shirt is now 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.
This woman is getting the shirt on over her dress.
Can she do it? She did it!
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.
This is a great festival. We really hope you can visit the Frozen Dead Guy Days in Nederland, Colorado next March.
