Tarnation Toss

Tarnation Toss

Teams of two heave their water balloons back and forth the furthest without making a splash. Teams with the longest heaves at the end of the day reign supreme. There is a category for the guys and the gals.

Format: Team members stand opposite each other at a set of markers. If they successfully toss and catch their waterballoons they move on to the next marker, and so on until the waterballoon breaks. The team that makes it the furthest wins. If teams are tied for the furthest distance there will be a sudden death playoff round.
