Up to 100 people are expected to participate in the 35-year- tradition, where pieces of cow excrement at least six inches in diameter are tossed discus-style to find the best poo thrower.
To allow for the farthest flying doo-doo, contest spokesperson Gwen Schlehofer says the feces is dried as much as possible and the resulting flop looks like crumpled up cardboard.
Still, contestants will have to do their best to toss the petrified pancakes the farthest. The current record stands at more than 182 feet, set back in 1979.
