The Bismarck Tribune reports that 180 two-person teams will compete Friday and Saturday for the $10,000 first-place prize.

Teams will launch from Fort Stevenson State Park. Weigh-ins will be at the city park in Garrison.

Last year, the top 10 teams were separated by a total of less than 3 pounds. The defending champion team is Mike Marshall of Garrison and Bill Marshall of Minot.
