(Neb)-Chadron Man Claims Buffalo Chip Throw Title

By: John Axtell Posted at: 07/08/2017 11:56 PM
CHADRON - The World Championship Buffalo Chip Throw title has returned to its hometown of Chadron after having been won last year by a New Zealander.

       23-year old Dylan Brant tossed a piece of dried bison dung 110-feet 1-inches on Saturday to win the men's 18-and-older division during the 41st annual Fur Trade Days celebration.

        Brant edged another Chadron man, 31-year old Willy Jones, by 17" to claim the title. Brant's winning toss was well short of the individual competition record of 186-7 set by  Gary Lackey of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, in 2000

       The all-time record is 204-feet by Chadron State College track All-American Kail Bowman in 1990 during a since-discontinued team event.

      The women's title Saturday went to 29-year old former Chadron resident Carmen Barth of Lincoln at 80'10" with Northwest Nebraska Tourism Director and Fur Trade Days head Kristina Harter the runner-up.

        This year's competition drew 88 participants in 7 age and gender divisions, down from 111 last year. Dawes County Attorney Vance Haug of Chadron was the only competitor in the Politician division and threw 70'7".
