Summer Redneck Games are on

  • Follow Latest News

EAST DUBLIN, Ga. — Don't worry, Bubba. The armpit serenades and mudpit belly flop will go on.

The official Summer Redneck Games in East Dublin were in danger of being canceled after sponsor WQZY radio pulled support because of an ongoing legal battle with the family of a boy who lost his arm during last year's event. But the East Dublin Lions Club is going ahead with the games on July 11.

Lions Club President Freddie Baugus said the event raises up to $15,000 annually for local charities with more than 10,000 people in attendance and media coverage from across the globe.

WQZY started the games in 1996 in conjunction with the Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Events include the cigarette flip, the big hair contest, the hubcap hurl and the Dumpster diving contest.

I can't see how they wouldn't raise more than $15,000 with 10,000 attending.

RamJam: You have got it all

RamJam: You have got it all wrong. Smoky and the Bandit went out back in 1977. The only thing you will see in South Georgia is four wheel drive pickups. If you did see someone in a Trans-Am, I bet they also still have a mullet.

I like the redneck games.

I like the redneck games. They're all about NAresident's post. They're also about being able to take a joke. They're one of the best festivals around and it's as much fun for a redneck as the NAMBLA festivals are for liberals.
