This was at the 2011 Kyle Fair and Music Festival (October 15, 2011).
This kid nailed it. He dunked this police officer 3 times. As you can see... the officer is in mid-dunk here.
It was $1 for 3 balls... and I think this kid got $3 worth.

Between September and October I took part in a community weight loss challenge that was hosted by Kyle Nutrition. Coaches Nicholas Skific and Karen Cotton were on hand to give advice and help us on our weight loss journey. It cost me $25 to join, we met every Tuesday for weigh-in and class. As the "biggest loser" at the end of 8 weeks I made $250 cash.
What did I do?
Nothing secret. I changed my diet (logged everything I ate and drank in so I could really keep track of my calories), and exercised every day at lunch from work. When I ate out, I mostly had salad (McDonalds has a decent salad... who knew?).
Many of the people in the challenge used and has success using Herbalife. Both coaches are distributors. You can probably see more of that on http://kylenutrition.com/. I chose not to use the products.
They are going to be holding another challenge beginning in November. It will be the first Tuesday in November (11/1/11) and they meet at Elite Bodyworks in Kyle (4100 Everett, Suite 200, Kyle, 78640 by the Hays CISD PAC) at either 9:30am or 7:15pm (two times). It costs $25 to enter. Even if you don't want to use the Herbalife products, the coaches will do a great job of helping you keep on track... at least they did for me.
For information on the next challenge (I think they do several a year... so if you missed this one, e-mail to see if it's happening again) e-mail the coaches:
Karen Cotton: firstname.lastname@example.org

I'm not sure if I'll be back though, since the rest of the food was average to below expectations and we've got legions of Mexican Restaurants in Kyle to choose from and this one doesn't make the top 5 for me.

This shot is probably my favorite from the parade. It's the Hay's Rebel's Cheerleaders.. but I caught this one in mid flip. She landed it perfectly...FYI.
Here's the link to all my parade shots: Sean Claes' 2011 Kyle Parade Photos

My favorite part about the Hootenanny is the Scarecrow making contest. My family has done it every year. I won't tell you what this year's attempt will be.. but I will share our scarecrow entries since it began... in 2006.
2006 brought this broom-headed masterpiece.
In 2007 we went for "Snowy The Scarecrow."
This one is called "Mr. Rocker." He was our 2008 entry.
"Hay Mon" was our 2009 scarecrow. I used a kickball for the head.
2010 was "Count Trashcula"
So... there's no telling what 2011's will be. Well.. I could tell you.. but I won't.
