The Possum Lodge is taken to court by businessman Robert Stiles whose limousine is damaged after falling into a sinkhole in front of
the lodge. The lodge members lose the case and must pay $10,000 in damages
within ten days - or their beloved Lodge will become property of the town.
The head of the lodge, Red Green (Smith) and his lodge brothers consider various fund-raising ideas. It is quickly agreed that selling road kill on the Internet or fire powered potato guns to children may be too complicated.
Ultimately, it is Red Green's nephew, Harold Green (McKenna) who
suggests participating in an upcoming Duct Tape Contest being held in
Minneapolis. There, a competition to create something made of at least 80% duct tape, will garner the third prize winner exactly $10,000. Naturally the boys band together and go for the bronze.
