Hardbody Contest Sign-up Begins

      Registration is underway for a quirky event that puts the city of Longview in the international spotlight every September. Sign-up for the 11th annual Hands on a Hardbody contest has begun at several locations in Longview. 

      The endurance contests yearly pits 24 contestants against each other at Patterson Nissan with their hands on the prize in a standing contest... to see who will be the last one standing to win a new pick-up truck and bass boat.

     The contest has drawn international coverage in the past, and for both organizers and contestants it's a unique chance to be part of a bizarre footnote in history. The deadline for registration is August 29th, and the 2003 Hands on a Hardbody contest will begin at 6 a.m. on September 9th.
