Bring your friends and family, take in the beautiful scenery of The Natural State, and send a flat stone dancing across the cove.
Did we mention the prize money for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place? Because we have that for both the Adult Flight and Children's Flight.

Competitors who pay their enrollment fee and register at the event registration table will receive an official skip slip that bears their registration number. Skip slips for male and female competitors (13 and older) and youth competitors (12 and under) will be issued on different colored paper. Only one skip slip will be issued per person.
During Open Competitive Skipping, registered competitors may present their skip slip, on a first come first skip basis, to the skip captain who will be situated near the shore in an area immediately west of the five skip judges. Upon presentation of a skip slip, the skip captain shall examine the three stones sought to be skipped by the competitor. Once the competitor’s stones are confirmed not to be man-made or man-altered, the competitor’s number is recorded by the skip captain in the scoring log and thereafter the competitor is entitled to three skips to be made without delay and with no part of his or her body touching water.
Five skip judges will observe, with only the naked eye, each competitor’s skip and thereafter caucus in private to arrive at an adjudged number of skips associated with each skip. Each skip’s adjudged number of skips will be immediately recorded by the skip captain in the adult log or youth log, and if 10 skips or greater in number, immediately displayed to the spectators by the skip signer. The top number of skips among a competitor’s three skips shall be recorded by the skip captain as the competitor’s top skip score.
The five adult male competitors, five adult female competitors, and five youth competitors achieving the highest number of skips in the Open Competitive Skipping shall advance to the Skip Off which shall be conducted in the same manner as in Open Competitive Skipping, except that each finalist shall be entitled to five skips.
