(Festus, Crystal City) Crystal City maintains its dominance in the Twin City Days Mayors’ Challenge. This (Friday) morning at the Twin City Days Breakfast at Crites Memorial Park in Festus, Crystal City mayor Tom Schilly got the best of Festus Mayor Sam Richard in an axe throwing competition. Prior to the contest, both mayors talked their trash.
Each mayor would get ten throws in a best two out of three series. Crystal City and Mayor Tom Schilly dominated the axe throwing, winning in two straight sets 22 to nothing and 23 to 5.
Crystal City Mayor Tom Schilly says luck was on his side.
Festus Mayor Sam Richards hit the bullseye several times….but the axe would not stick to the board.
It marks the 7th year in a row in which Crystal City defeated Festus in the Mayors’ Challenge. The axe throwing equipment was provided by Oh Happy Days axe throwing in Herculaneum. The breakfast was provided by Bob Evans and the Twin City Chamber of Commerce.
