Put your best boot forward for old-school fun
The Gum Boot Throw is a new event coming to the show this year and is designed to inject some old-school country tradition back into the show.
“All you have to do is throw the gum boot the furthest,” entertainment co-ordinator Kaitlin Hull said.
The event will be run in just two nomination categories — 17 years and above and 16 and younger.
The throw will join the Raywell Contracting Tug Rope War Competition.
First place for the 17-and-over category is $50 and ribbons for first and second, while the 16-and-below first, second and third places will receive a ribbon.
The event will be near the main stage about 5pm.
