Texas man wins Chadron Fur Trade Days buffalo chip toss

Posted: Updated:
 A Texas man has won the men's championship at the annual World Championship Buffalo Chip Toss at the Fur Trade Days event in Chadron.

Chadron radio station KQSK says 41-year-old Derek Noe, of Harlingen, Texas, threw a piece of dried bison dung 125 feet, 1 inch on Saturday to win the male 18-and-older competition.

His throw was well short of the Fur Trade Days' individual competition record of nearly 187 feet set in 2000.

The women's crown for those 18 and older was claimed by 23-year old Ashley Riesen, of Chadron, who tossed a chip 88 feet, 9 inches.
