Strong men step up for com­pe­ti­tion

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Times News -

IT will be a battle of the brawn next week when the North­cliffe Ho­tel and Motor Inn hosts its first tug-of-war com­pe­ti­tion.

Ho­tel own­ers Dun­can and He­len Smith have or­gan­ised for WA’s Aus­tralian tug-of-war cham­pi­ons to come along to the Deep South Tug­gers event on October 14. Mr Smith said North­cliffe used to have a tug-of-war com­pe­ti­tion “back in the day”, when it was the east of the rail­way line against the west.

“It’s the first time ever we’ve held the event, we wanted to try some­thing new,” he said.

The com­pe­ti­tion is call­ing on teams of eight in the men’s and women’s di­vi­sions to fill out the com­pe­ti­tion, start­ing from 11am.

En­try is $50 for a team and in­cludes drinks.

“Hope­fully it’ll be big enough that peo­ple want to be in it again next year,” Mr Smith said.

There will be a cour­tesy bus avail­able, mar­ket stalls and face­paint­ing.

Call 9776 7089 to reg­is­ter.
