Wrapping up the event was the annual Chamber Ambassadors Challenge against the Sheridan Jaycees. After passing a stick horse through everyone’s legs, then spinning 10 times, participants then grabbed a hula hoop and ran down the field on their stick horse. Waiting for them at the end of the field was a fellow competitor with their feet planted in buckets. The runner had to throw the hula hoop towards the person at the end of the field for them to catch and place over their body. The Chamber Ambassadors won by getting the most hula hoops over the person at the end.
