The 2015 Apple Bobbing Championship!


The 2015 Apple Bobbing Championship was an epic display of skill, determination, and attitude between Three-Time World Champion Bobber, Bob Syder, and hopeful rookie Paula Red.

The competition was fierce, but Bob Syder’s experience and perseverance helped him emerge victorious.
