If area chickens appear to be extra nervous this time of year, we think we know why. The 9th Annual Hannibal Jaycees' Wing Ding is nearly upon us! This year's event is set for Saturday, January 26 at the Admiral Coontz Armory and it looks to be an even bigger party this year. Two things are certain: Hot wings will be cooked and hot wings will be eaten. The theme this year is "It's 5 o'clock Somewhere"

If you want to enter a team, cost is just $100 and the Jaycees provide the chicken. All you provide is...well...the love. (and hopefully a tasty recipe of "fixins") For details on the Wing Ding, check out the Hannibal Jaycees website or their Facebook page.
