Well, this is an interesting way to make an extra couple of bucks...

Lubbock entrepreneur, Chuck Colbert, is offering up cash prizes to the top three tumbleweeds in town. All you have to do is find a nice one and then take it over to The Metro Tower to be judged.

Why? I have no idea. But, that's not going to stop me from looking around town for the perfect tumbleweed and giving it a shot. I could always use some extra cash to spend on Christmas shopping.

According to his Facebook post, your tumbleweed can be big or small, and should be as "light in color as possible". Sounds easy enough! He will be announcing the winner on December 1st. The first place will get you a sweet $75, second place is worth $50, and the third place prize is $25.

It sounds like a good excuse to get your kids out of the house and get them some exercise running around looking for tumbleweeds in town.

I'm pretty curious about this contest. Are the tumbleweeds going to be used in some kind of art project? I could send him a message and ask him, but I kind of like the mystery of it all.

So, if you are strapped for cash and looking for a way to make a little skrilla before the holidays, you might get lucky and win some money with a good tumbleweed. It's worth a shot. Winners will be announced on December 1st, and entries will be accepted through November 28th. Good luck!
