The 5th Annual Spring Fling Wing Thing brings restaurants and businesses from the local area together to compete for prizes in a variety of categories:
- Chicasso - Best Creative Wing Flavor
- Hot Chick on Campus - Best Buffalo-Style Hot Wing
- Best Finger Lick'n Chicken - People's Choice
- Bearcat Best Wing - Best Overall Wing ($300 Cash Prize and Traveling Trophy)
This will be a great opportunity for participants to showcase themselves to the campus community and prove that they have the best wings around. This event is held in conjunction with McKendree's Spring Fling, which will include inflatables, games, music, and the wing bobbing contest.
As you know, everyone loves wings, and everybody has an opinion about their favorite style, their favorite place to eat them, and their favorite way of preparing them. There are so many options of flavor – from the traditional Buffalo-style to sweet & sour, to who knows what! Discussions about wings can bring talk more heated than the wings themselves. We hope that you take the opportunity to let your wings do the talking.
This year's event will be held on the campus quad area on Saturday, April 20, 2013.
