With clear blue sky and sparkling blue water, 15 young Gerplunkers contested for glory July 4th on the famous Windemere Beach of Mackinac Island.
Gerplunking is an important part of the Mackinac Island Stone Skipping event as Stone Skipping is but one of the more advanced forms of Gerplunking.
Kirby “Fully Loaded” Berke and Colin “C-Man” Lacy tied for first place with a 8.9 overall average score after the required 5 plunks. After all competition had ended, the tie score required a “Plunk-off” to determine the winner.
During the “Plunk-off” stones were tossed one-at-a-time, alternating between the contestants. After calculating the totals, a scant .38 difference proved Colin “C-Man” Lacy the winner, and allowed him to claim top honors.
The award was a necklace created from a Mackinac Island Beach Stone that had developed a natural hole. It was secured to an attractive lanyard by means of a silver band.
Congratulations to all of these fine Plunkers:
