Hillbilly Skee-Ball – You will need a cardboard box containing an partition with at least 6 cavities (“the Skee-Ball box”) and 4 small soft Gator Skin balls or tennis balls. Set a cone 12” away from each edge of the Skee-Ball box. Kids are asked to line up behind the cones and to perform 1-3 hang power cleans with a medium-size pumpkin or small 4#-6# medicine ball as a buy in for one throw to the box (throw can be bounced).
