Jack Bensley of Odebolt catches freshly made popcorn ball material as it comes off the conveyor belt. Sac City Townsfolk attempted to build the world's largest popcorn ball. They have set the record twice before, only to be upstaged by Boy Scouts in 1997 and an Illinois popcorn maker in 2006. They spent all day on Saturday packing the sugary popcorn onto a platform. They want to bring the title back to Iowa.
