Win a pack of Pringles at the Hessentag

Visitors to the Hessentag in Oberursel who get off their train at the Altstadt station (formerly Portstraße) have the chance to win a pack of Pringles crips.

To do this, they have to knock over a pile of cans, except they are not the ordinary tin cans that you see at other events.  These are Pringles cans.

And you do not through a ball either.  Instead you have something that is a cross between a tennis racket and a large bag.  You pull it back and then release, using the sight on the top to aim the air that is released at the cans.

It’s not easy!
