It’s a long way from Vancouver, but a north central Iowa community is hosting a series of wacky winter events this weekend as part of the Chillympics. Tyler Abens is helping coordinate the festivities in Webster City, with events including snow dodge ball and longest sledding launch.
Abens says four-person teams will compete in five events, including frozen turkey bowling and toilet seat horseshoes. If there’s a tie, there will be a Polar Plunge event involving an inflatible swimming pool filled with icy water. The competition runs from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M. on Saturday.
