Funny, Mom and I were just talking about these the other day...

Mom and one of my brothers used to have pogo-stick contests on some Saturdays, long ago...  They HAD to be on Saturday, for no other reason than there simply wasn't enough time for a pogo contest between those two on any other day of the week.

Simple rules: One starts to jump while the other counts.  When the first person tired, quit, fell off, stopped for any reason, round over.  Other jumps while the first counts, again until he/she runs outa steam.  Whomever makes the most jumps wins.

ONE round.  Start early in the morning, often it was dark by the time the ONE round ended.  Seems to me the family record was something like 12,000 consecutive jumps, set by Mom.

Just for the heck of it, I just went out and looked it up: The world record is 88,047 consecutive jumps, set in 2015.

Having zero athleticism or balance or hand-eye coordination, I doubt I ever made 100 consecutive jumps.
