Donkey basketball fundraiser held for Wapsie Valley FFA

Posted: Updated:
FAIRBANK (KWWL) - Wapsie Valley Junior High/High School put on an unusual show Monday night.

The bleachers were filled with people, while the court was filled with donkeys.

The donkey basketball tournament was put on by the Wapsie Valley FFA as a fundraiser for their Ag 4 class spring trip to Chicago.

There were six teams and three games that lasted 20 minutes each.

"It was a little different, you get on there and you put your faith into the donkey and really get whipped for a ride," participant and student at Oelwein High School, Tristan Dittmer said. "It wears you out, I thought being in sports and stuff I'd really be okay, but it took me for a ride."

They didn't keep score, but it provided some good entertainment for everyone.
