    Background: Spring madness in the United States which began with streaking this year finished off on a traditional note -- with the annual frog jumping contest in Calaveras County, California.

    A large audience watched the contest. Different frog minders had different iseas about drawing the best performances from their entrants. Young girls have their frogs a last minute pat as they put them on the jumping block. Several burly men thought jumping in the air and landing just behind their frogs would produce the winning leap.

    Judging is difficult. The frogs leap so fast the judges have to rely on memory to pick the winners.
