After a summer of family coming over to swim in our pool, we have an annual cannonball contest. It's held the second weekend of August. It started out as a joke but has grown each year. We have a sign-up board and had different categories by age/gender…sometimes we'll have a special category that only one person can fit in just so we guarantee them a win. The first year we went to Walmart and got silly gifts, but we have kicked up our game and now give engraved metals and a trophy for the overall champ. Family and friends come each year, and they bring a snack and we have a great time. I forgot we have judges with score paddles, and one judge keeps tally and declares the winners. We have such a good time.
