There will also be a Hot Shot Competition ($10 per participant entry) where contestants have 25 seconds to get as many points as they can, and a three-point shootout ($10 per participant entry). Winners of each competition will receive cash prizes. The more people that turn out, the bigger the pot will be. Participants must be 14 years or older to compete. Food will also be provided to the contestants.
