 Spring Fling Wing Bobbing Contest 2014!

It’s fun! It’s messy! It’s unlike any other contest held on campus! The sixth annual Wing Bobbing Contest will feature McKendree University students, faculty, and staff competitors who will bob for hot wings in a kid-size swimming pool filled with ranch dressing and chicken wings – without using their hands!

The winner gets a Spring Fling Wing Thing t-shirt, a $25 Buffalo Wild Wings Gift Card, $25 Hooters Gift Card, and 2 Cardinals tickets to a regular season home game! All other competitors will receive a Spring Fling Wing Thing t-shirt and a $25 Buffalo Wild Wings Gift Card.

Wing Thing Student Judge Needed!

Eating chicken wings and then deciding on who has the best ones in a tough job, but someone's got to do it!   We're looking for a student that can be fair,  impartial, and has a palate that can distinguish the finest of wing spices to determine a winner!  Okay - really, it's all about eating some free wings and scoring them to see which restaurants will win our Spring Fling Wing Thing categories.  Think you can do it?  Tell us why we should choose you and you could be selected!  CLICK HERE
