The Summer Redneck Games

When you hear the word ‘redneck’, what usually comes to mind is the stereotypical image of a Southerner with a thick country accent, toting around a shotgun, a can of beer, and wearing a worn-out wife-beater covered in barbecue stains. Many people of rednecks as unintelligent people with bad hygeine who live in trailers and drive pick-up trucks adorned with a Confederate flag duct taped to the back window. While this description may suit some people, it is far from being completely true.

In 1996, the Olympic Games were schedules to take place in Atlanta, Georgia. The media joked that a bunch of rednecks would host the Games. Mac Davis, a resident of the town East Dublin, Georgia, took offense to the media’s comments. He and several other town locals organized the Summer Redneck Games in an attempt to mock the unflattering stereotype the media held of rednecks. The Summer Redneck Games were initally founded to hold a charitable fundraiser for the community as well. To everyone’s great surprise, over 5,000 people turned up for the event. International press coverage of the Games won them instant popularity. Over the past ten years, more than 95,000 people have traveled from all over the world to attend this bizarre event.

Described as a “grandiose bake sale . . . only with butt-cracks and hubcaps instead of brownies and pie”, the Summer Redneck Games definitely lives up to expectations. Several hundred people arrive dressed casually in overalls, scuffed jeans, bathing suits, and baseballs caps. Confederate flags decorate the area and most of the crowd. Almost every member in attendance (not including the children, of course) is drinking beer and eating home-cooked, Southern food. Country music bands perform live throughout the day. The spectators periodically cool off in the Oconee River after enduring hours of Georgia’s hot summer weather. The friendly atmosphere brings everyone together as they all prepare to compete against each other in the unusual Redneck Games.

Traditionally, the international Olympic Games start with an Opening Ceremony, during which one of the competitors lights the Olympic torch. Similarly, the Summer Rednecks Games also begins with an opening ceremony and the lighting of a torch. However, unlike the one used in the Olympics, the Redneck torch is made of beer cans.

Once the beer can torch is fired up, the Summer Redneck Games can begin. Crowds of people line up to compete against each other in common games that were given a hillbilly-twist.

BOBBIN’ FOR PIGS’ TROTTERS

If you’ve ever heard of bobbing for apples, you know the basics of this game. The contestant kneels in front of a tub filled with water, clasps his hands behind his back, dunks his head into the water, and removes the apples from the bucket using only his mouth. In the Redneck Games, the item being bobbed for is pigs’ feet instead of apples. The players’ goal is to remove more pigs’ feet in a given amount of time than the other contestants.

REDNECK HORSESHOES

Horseshoes is a popular, internationally played game. In a normal game of horseshoes, two players or teams compete against each other using four metal, U-shaped horseshoes and two stakes. The stakes are the throwing targets and are set in a sandbox area. The players take turns tossing the horshoes at the stakes, attempting to completely encircling the stake with the horseshoe. The game is scored by either throwing ringers—encirle the stake with the horseshoe—or by throwing it closest to the stake. With each round, the winner is awarded two points. The game usually is played up to 21 points. The makers of the Summer Redneck Games added their own twist to this particular event. The contestants use toilet seats instead of horseshoes!

THE MUDPIT BELLY FLOP

Many kids play a game similar to the mudpit belly flop when they go swimming in a pool with their friends. They jump off a diving board or the edge of the pool and try to make the biggest splash. Contestants in the Redneck Games do exactly this; however, instead of a pool, they are jumping into a giant mudhole. In addition, the players must flop into the mud belly-first. The one who can shower the most people with mud wins!

ARMPIT SERENADE

This Summer Redneck Game gives people the chance to show off a strange, unique talent. Forget about guitars, pianos, and drums. In this event, participants utilize a completely new instrument: the armpit! They do so by placing their hands under their armpits and make any type of noise—the louder the better. Aubrey Matthews, an 8-year-old boy, remains the champion of the Armpit Serenade by playing Mary Had a Little Lamb.

Other events include:

• Seed Spitting

• Big-hair Contest

• Dumpster Diving

• Hubcap Hurling

• The Cigarette Flip

• Wet T-Shirt Contest

A special trophy with a mounted half-crushed, empty beer can is awarded to the winner of each Redneck Game.

Update:

While these Summer Redneck Games may not seem like a sport, thousands of people practice all year in preparation for this annual event. Aubrey Matthews, the reigning champion of the Armpit Serenade, practiced for two years before coming to perform at the Rednecks Games. Many of the contestants work hard to perfect their horseshoe, apple bobbing, and belly flopping skills, just as an athlete participating in the Olympics trains before they compete. Besides being a fun, light-hearted event, the Redneck Games continues to be a charitable organization. This highly unusual sport started as a goofy way to raise money for charity and evolved into a nationwide extravaganza; where everyone and their buttcrack are welcome . . . even Yankees.
