     CHADRON, Neb. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - A Colorado man has won the men's championship at the annual World Championship Buffalo Chip Toss at the Fur Trade Days event in Chadron.
     Twenty-seven-year-old Charley Teal of Fort Collins, Colo., threw a piece of dried bison dung 103 feet, 6 inches on Saturday to win the male 18-and-older competition.
     His throw was well short of the world record of nearly 187 feet set in 2000.
     The women's crown for those 18 and older was claimed by 39-year old Crystal Ford, of Fort Collins, Colo., who tossed a chip 62 feet, 7 inches.
