Put your best boot for­ward for old-school fun

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - 88 WATTONA SHOW -

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.
