Only in Wisconsin...

...will people head out on a hot Saturday night for a cheese curd throwing contest.

Looking down the street toward the bank's sign at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Terri Wiersma said, "Oh, look, it's cooling off!"

Down by one degree, a "98" flashed across the sign.

Her husband, Dan, chuckled as the couple set up the trophies and paraphernalia for the 2006 World Championship Cheese Curd Throwing contest that was about to begin Saturday night during the Colby Cheese Days festival.

The contest would be more challenging if were a deep fried beer battered cheese curd throwing contest...and if someone had to catch it in their mouth at the other end.
