The much anticipated return of Tryon’s April Fools Festival Outhouse Races, sponsored by Foothills Crawlspace, were hotly contested again this year! In the adult race, defending champion Landrum JROTC lost by a nose in the preliminary round to the Harmon Field Music Festival wagon. In the second heat, Foothills Crawlspace edged McGourtys Pub and then went on to victory in the final. In the junior division, the all-female Long Drop team beat down two separate teams of heavy footed lads. The victorious Ava Marino quipped, "Girls rule and boys drool!"
For your people-powered outhouse to compete, it had to have have:
• Four walls
• Four wheels on the ground
• A roof
• Four outhouse pushers
• One rider inside the outhouse
