What is that?!
Well, let me tell you. You take a few donkeys....
* * * * * *
We went to Little River, where Al's sister and family live, to go to a very unusual fundraiser.
There were a few cute kids there!!
Al and his sister, Julie
Of course you have to start with the national anthem!
The grade school came out on the court to sing. I don't think I've ever seen that done before. Sweet!
So, to tell you about donkeyball - you take a basket ball court
and a few players willing to play basketball on the backs of donkeys!
My niece, Susie and her team - The Seniors
Then there were also teams made up of
the teachers of the grade school,
the teachers of the high school,
and the city chamber.
These donkeys came from Wisconsin with a company that trains them to play for fundraisers.
Of course there are always a few bucked off!
Especially when they rode ones called Widow Maker.
Here he was bucked over the top of the donkey's head!
It would have been fun to video tape, but it was not allowed.
Sometimes the donkeys were pretty stubborn.
Get the ball Susie!
You could get off the donkey to get the ball,
but in order to pass the ball, you had to be riding on his back.
Some of the players had a hard time riding.
The seniors won their game.
This photo turned out blurry, but this lady backhanded the ball and it went in!! The play of the night!
My brother-in-law, Russell.
His team also won, which meant he would be playing Susie for the final game.
This guy's grass skirt fell off revealing...
Before the final game between the Seniors and the Chamber, there were kiddie rides.
This man was challenged to ride Hemorrhoid.
The Seniors won the final game.
What a fun time we had!!
Thanks for all the laughs, Russell and Susie!
