A line of ladies from watch as Floyd Ford, 87, Baldwin City, tries to knock the head off of a dummy by throwing a skillet at it during the third-annual Skillet Throw contest amongst senior members of the Baldwin City community on Wednesday. Contestants gathered in a shady spot of a parking lot across the street from the Ives Methodist Church in Baldwin City, 1018 Miami, for the event, which was organized by the Ives Chapel United Methodist Women for no other reason than to promote a little fun amongst seniors.
