(Above) Hundreds of people lined Crosby Street in downtown Tekoa on Saturday afternoon, June 19, to participate in the annual egg toss competition.

TEKOA - Brothers-in-law Shane Monroy and Sander Carren won the 28th Slippery Gulch egg toss after fending off a new Tekoa graduate and a visiting videographer.

The annual spectacle returned to Crosby Street on June 19 after no festival in 2020.

"Three years in a row, man," Carren said.

Dressed as a cowboy, a youngster expressively awaits an egg tossed his way during the annual Slippery Gulch Celebration on Saturday, June 29, in Tekoa.

His wife then informed him there was no event last year. So, it was after their victory in 2019.

Carren and Monroy won $50 each "and a trip to Tilma," as called by announcer Chris Smith.

In second-place were crowd favorites Ava Rambo, of Tekoa, and Gabe Grende, of Big Fork, Mont., the grandson of city councilman and former mayor John Jaeger. On a previous visit, Grende shot the video for Rambo's senior project.

"I was actually pulling for her, but we couldn't give it to her," Carren said.

Plans for the winnings leaned to the short-term.

"Give it to the kids (for the park)," Carren said.

The egg toss began with hundreds of pairs lined up and down the street, whittling down to an "elite nine," and continued until two people remained.
