The SuperPog Games consists of the:
v Rendezvous Run (Sprint)

All of the events require a hedgehog exercise ball. Every hedgehog owner must have their own exercise balls. In order to keep all of our hedgehogs safe from the possible transmission of contagious disease and or external parasites the sharing of exercise balls by multiple hedgehog households is strictly forbidden.
You may bring your own exercise ball or purchase one at the show. If you plan to purchase an exercise ball at the show please e-mail email@example.com no later than September 30, 2008 to place an advance order.

In this event, hedgehogs have an opportunity to get in touch with their inner Insectivore by hunting the wilily and elusive cartoon mealworm. Hedgies in exercise balls stalk and kill (ie: knock over) printed cartoon mealworms to test their hunting skills. There is a two minute limit for this event. Flat ribbons are awarded at the “Apprentice Hunter”, and “Hunter” levels of performance. Flat ribbons and medals are awarded at the “Expert Hunter” and “Master Hunter” levels of performance.
Musical Hedgehog Colors
This event is the Hedgehog equivalent of musical chairs. In this event Hedgehogs in exercise balls compete on a Hamtrac oval track. Each of the six Hamtrac sections represents one of the six Hedgehog Show Color Classes (Standard, Apricot, Pinto, Snowflake, White, and Albino). Before the music starts a color is randomly chosen and when the music stops, any hedgehog on that color is OUT. The process continues until only one hedgehog remains. Flat Ribbons are awarded for First through Sixth Place. All non placing contestants receive an Honorable Mention Flat Ribbon. Medals are awarded to the top three finishers.
