    BTW: Shit stomp is a whole different game, much like cow flop bingo, but a little more “feet on”.

    I was at the meeting at the Unconference. I live in Kingston, NY, Mon to Friday. I could possibly help out with this project. I was raised on a small farm in the Finger Lakes Region of NY.
    Happy Holidays,
