Rocket City Rednecks to Make Guest Appearance at Rick and Bubba Turkey Toss in Decatur, Ala.

The Rick and Bubba Turkey Toss will make its first appearance in Decatur, Ala., November 17th and along with flying turkeys, reality stars from “Rocket City Rednecks” will make a special guest appearance.

PRLog - Nov. 14, 2011 - The Rick and Bubba Turkey Toss will make its first appearance in Decatur Thursday, November 17th and along with flying turkeys, reality stars from “Rocket City Rednecks” will make a special guest appearance bringing with them their own hand-made contraption to launch a turkey into the air.

National Geographic Channel’s latest reality series “Rocket City Rednecks” features self-proclaimed rednecks from Morgan and Madison counties. Each episode shows how they combine redneck ingenuity with engineering and physics to solve real-world problems. Travis Taylor, Charles “Daddy” Taylor, Michael “The Kid” Taylor, “Pistol Pete” Erbach, and Rog “The Sidekick” Jones will be in Decatur where they will launch a frozen turkey using the trebuchet they built for the “Hillbilly Armageddon New” episode that aired on October 5, 2011.

Academy Sport + Outdoors located in Decatur was chosen by the general public to host the 2011 Rick and Bubba Turkey Toss from an online voting contest on the Rick and Bubba website in early October. The annual competition serves as a fundraiser for a local charity while determining who can throw a frozen turkey the farthest where $5K in Academy Sport + Outdoors gift cards are up for grabs. The nationally syndicated radio hosts of the Rick and Bubba Show will broadcast live providing a play by play action of the competition to their listeners from 6 to 10 a.m. in the parking lot of Academy Sports + Outdoors.

One by one, contestants line up to see who can throw the frozen turkey the greatest distance. The contest is set to begin at 6 a.m. and end at 9:30 a.m. While the wildly popular contest determines who can throw the farthest, it also raises money and food for a local charity. Those interested in participating must donate a non-perishable food item or cash. Neighborhood Christian Center of Alabama will be on hand to accept donations.  

The 2010 event took place in Montgomery where the winner in the male division threw a distance of 121 feet with the female winner taking honors at 76 feet. Divisions include men’s, women’s, military, kids (12 and under), and high heels (women only). Prizes, totaling $5K in Academy Sport + Outdoors gift cards, will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in each division.
