WHAT’S ON?

In the true spirit of the Port Macquarie Beer and Cider Festival there will be games aplenty. With a new year we’ve introduced a new format, a new game, and new challenges. Let the games begin….

New Format

This year we will be crowning a Festival King and Queen. These people epitomize everything that makes a sporting great. They will have demonstrated speed, agility, strength, accuracy, and a primeval will to win.

To earn the crown competitors will compete in three disciplines. The keg toss, the keg roll, and the thong throw. Scores and rankings from all three events will be tallied and bragging rights established. The male and female with the highest combined total will be crowned the festival’s King and Queen respectively.

Keg Toss:

Throw an empty beer keg (supplied, no need to bring your own) as far as you can. Remember not to cross the throwing line. Your throw is measured from the throwing line to where the keg first lands.

Keg Roll:

Roll an empty beer keg around our Country Brewer markers, turn at the end, and cross the finish line in the quickest possible time. Any markers that are hit require you to move the keg back to the previous marker, or the start line if it was the first marker.

Thong Throw:

Throw a thong (the foot variety, not the other) through the holes cut in our beach scene to score points. Three throws are allowed and the total of the throws is added together to form your total. Thongs not passing completely through a hole score zero points.

Cash Prizes

Cold hard cash, kindly sponsored by The Country Brewer Port Macquarie, will be presented at the conclusion of the day. Prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd male and female will be awarded.

If you’re not in it….

Quite obviously if you’re not entered there is no way to earn the cash. Pre registration can be done by visiting our website and completing the form. There are limited places available and priority will be given to these entrants.

We will be taking a limited number of registrations on the day. Look for the information tent or ask one of our super helpful volunteers.

Cheers and good luck (not that luck has anything to do with it)!!!
