I have 2 boys 5 and 3 and I need to win some prizes at the midway for them to live up to my superhero reputation.

Any hints about which is the best game to win at .

Ring toss
water shooter

You know the games - now tell me the secret!


By the way - I enjoy the farm product contests the best - largest pumpkin, largest watermelon etc..

Sorry, but I just gotta brag a bit about my sweet wife....This year she took 3 First Premiums (prize)at the NC state fair in Raleigh for her baskets. She is very talented and I am very proud of her!!

well that is where we are going on friday to the Raleigh State fair

Found out a few midway tips

to shoot out the star - shoot a ring around the star then the start will just fall out

to climb the ladder to ring the bell - suspend yourself on the outside of the ladder not the rungs - this keeps your weight balanced

to land on dime on the plate - you need to have the dime come straight down not at an angle so it lands flat

to toss the ring onto the bottle - toss 3 of the rings at a time

to lift the bottle - point the bottle away from you - lift the stick vertically not horizontally - put the ring on the bottle and pull straight back

basket toss - toss the ball into the front lip of the basket not the back.

good luck
