    Chris Doyle, Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 100, which sponsors the frog jump, reported approximately 200 children competed.
    The Scouts had caught about 95 frogs for the contest. The frogs were later released to the location where they were caught.
    The Scouts rent frogs to children who do not bring one, and each year the children rent about 75 percent of their frogs from the Boy Scouts, Doyle said.
    The frog jump began at noon Saturday, and Hannibal had a rain shower later. “It got a little damp at the end, but we completed it and everyone had a good time,” Doyle said.
    “We had more people pre-register” than usual, and “a lot of out-of-towners. … People were giggly and excited to have their kids jump frogs.”
