  • Rules to play Logrolling

    River dance

    The name of the game is log rolling and its pretty simple a log rolls as two people try to balance atop it. The competition takes place on open, moving water with one participant on each end of the log. As rolling commences, propelled by the feet, competitors are known to use tactics including changing the direction of the spin, stalling the log in place and, incredibly, even hopping in order to plunge the opposite end under water a little trick known as bobbing the log to throw ones opponent off balance.

    The elite among these river tap dancers are even known to dip one foot into the drink mid roll to kick water up into their opponents faces. After all of the fancy footwork, the person who stays upright the longest, or who falls in the water last, is declared the winner. And while it stimulates the crowds of today, log rolling wasnt always a form of entertainment. Beginning in the late 1800s, men were tasked with moving slews of logs great distances to keep up with the demand for timber. With the absence of trucks and roads, those in the logging industry got creative.
