Boosters Jump Their Way Into History

Sponsored by:

Angels Camp, CA — Parting ways with the 2007 Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee, the Angels Camp Boosters held their own Frog Jumps in downtown Angels Camp this weekend.

Sunday marked the Grand Finale of theOriginal Frog Jump Jubilee.” That´s what organizers are calling their first event held without the fair since the two joined forces in 1938.

The boosters decided not to participate in the fair this year after it could not work out accommodation concerns with the fair´s newly formed Frog Jump Committee.

Taking home the trophy at the boosters´ event was Bayli Riggs of Oregon. She traveled with the Oregon Frog Team to compete and earned the $750 purse and trophy.
