Mus­cled up a vic­tory

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

THE team rep­re­sent­ing the Biggenden Show So­ci­ety had to fight hard to re­tain their tug-o-war crown at the show on Satur­day.

Once again coun­cil­lor Lofty Wendt put up $1000 prize money for the men’s and women’s com­pe­ti­tions.

Cr Wendt said the show was get­ting big­ger and bet­ter ev­ery year.

“It was great to see a women’s team come up from the Sun­shine Coast to ex­pe­ri­ence our hos­pi­tal­ity,” he said.

“My aim for this com­pe­ti­tion has al­ways been to pro­mote it to other towns and get more peo­ple through the gates.”

The show team didn’t have it all their own way as most of the tugs went to three pulls.

“There was some fan­tas­tic com­pe­ti­tion,” Cr Wendt said.

For the women the Old Fre­sians hadn’t lost their power and were easy win­ners on the day.
