Elks Hula Hoop contest Saturday

Arthur Melin and Richard Knerr’s iconic toy will be the focus of an all-ages contest at the Elks Lodge this weekend.

Elks Lodge 1491 will host its 10th annual hula hoop contest beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 4, on the second floor of the lodge.

Participants of all ages will twirl, roll, throw and perform all sorts of hula hoop feats.

The contest will include four different age divisions: 8 years old and younger; ages 9 to 12; ages 13-16; and an adult division for anyone ages 17 and older.

Participants should be at the lodge by 10 a.m. to register. The hula hoop showmanship is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. The organization has some hoops available but encourages participants to bring their own.

Prizes will be awarded.
