Missing the Mark
Description: The Abraham Lincoln National Railsplitting Festival takes place the weekend after Labor Day in Lincoln, Illinois. There is a pioneer village at the festival where people (and many times families) wear period costumes and demonstrate period crafts. Here a young boy was practicing for the Tomahawk Throw contest to be held the following day. The object is to land the tomahawk on the playing card fixed to the target block. He must have tried about 12 times - and never did hit the card. In this composite, you can see that the tomahawk landed at about six o'clock on the block - the card is just right of center.
