Ralph Van Deurs competes Friday in The Burger Hut's first "Blair Burger Challenge" in Milton-Freewater. Participants had 15 minutes to eat three Blair burgers - a triple burger with cheese, ham and bacon, sauce and salad - and a pound of french fries. Those who succeeded got their $15 entry fee back, a T-shirt and a picture on the Main Street eatery's Wall of Fame. Van Deurs finished the first burger in 1 minute, 30 seconds. The second burger was gone after three minutes, 30 seconds. He finished the final burger after nine minutes, 10 seconds. The last of the french fries were gone at 13 minutes, 47 seconds. The event was inspired by the television show "Man Vs. Food," where host Adam Richman travels the country tackling food challenges in cities across America.
