At The Great Sugar Hill Egg Fight

Record #:
Sugar Hill, a suburb of Fallston, is known for its annual Easter egg fight. Participants bring anywhere from 6 dozen hard-boiled eggs to 125 dozen, sometimes more. A fight commences when one person taps his or her egg against another person's egg. When one end of an egg is cracked, it is turned over, and another attack begins. A winner is declared when both ends of a competitor's egg are cracked. The winner keeps the loser's egg and both of them move on to the next fight.
