I met John Hurt through Mike Seger in Newport in '63. His agent, Tom Hopkins said we could sit and talk. Of course it was a festival and I was sitting backstage with him and a few people. A month or so later he was playing at the Philadelphia folk festival. I saw him approaching me and I started walking briskly to him to ask if he remembered me, I was in my early 20s, and when I got near enough, he said 'Hey Man! Do you remember me!?' hehe! That explains Mississippi John Hurt! Instead of me asking, he did! - Jerry Ricks, http://www.blueschat.com/tscripts/bc062198.htm

I'm assuming the banjo toss will use resonators, for maximum volume.

I think the resonator also renders the banjo slightly more aerodynamic, creating just enough lift to get the tosser a bit more length on the throw.  While we're all contemplating the physical properties of resonator and non-resonator banjos and how those properties affect their flight patterns, Jalopy Theatre brings us this peek into the festival preparations:
