FEATURE: Horseshoes and merry-go-rounds
Dave Jones of Dale, 62, lifted a horseshoe to his eye level as he aimed at the metal peg in the sandpit at his partner Eric Underhill's feet, of English, as the two competed against other pairs in a horseshoe tournament Saturday at the Birdseye Picnic. Jones has played horseshoes for more than 30 years. "You've just got to look at the peg, throw it and hit it," Jones said. "It's a lot harder than it looks though."
Rielly Eckert of Duff, 6, left, laughed as she and Lily Litkenhus of Birdseye, 6, spun around on a merry-go-round at a playground Saturday afternoon during the Birdseye Picnic in Birdseye.
