This one-of-a-kind event, where enthusiasts traveled from all over to compete for trophies and bragging rights, has been a community highlight for more than 22 years. The great fruitcake toss is the event of the winter season as the hapless dessert is launched into space with a variety of mechanical and pneumatic devices.
Competitions have included the Hand Toss, Kid's Toss, Launch, Pneumatic Gun or Canon, Team Catch or Accuracy division.
Fortunately, the fruitcakes aren't wasted after the event. These baked goods travel to SunMountain, where friendly creatures including Jezebel, a pig, munch on the leftovers.
