Crazy fun time at Whim Creek

Pilbara News - - News - Louise Alling­ham

Res­i­dents from Port Hed­land and Kar­ratha flocked to Whim Creek Ho­tel at the week­end for a fun-filled day of crazy pub games.

Vis­i­tors of all ages par­tic­i­pated in ac­tiv­i­ties and games, in­clud­ing mini cricket, sumo wrestling, the buck­ing bull and a spaghetti-eat­ing con­test.

Gen­eral man­ager Bob Bon­giorno said the week­end was a “roar­ing suc­cess” and the ho­tel had many more fun-filled events planned for 2016.

“We’ve got a whole cal­en­dar of events planned,” he said.

“We’ve got a num­ber of bands on the green, a beer fes­ti­val, we’ve got three other week­ends of crazy pub games com­ing up and we’re hav­ing a hor­ror movie fes­ti­val where we’ll change the name of the ho­tel from Whim Creek to Wolf Creek for one week­end.”

Mr Bon­giorno hopes the com­ing year will put Whim Creek Ho­tel on the map as one of the Pil­bara’s top week­end spots for work­ers to blow off some steam. “We want to put our name up there as a place where peo­ple can have a lot of fun,” he said.

“We know that we’re sur­rounded by min­ing ar­eas, which are mainly work en­vi­ron­ments and we want to pro­vide an out for peo­ple on week­ends, to get out, have fun and sort of es­cape for a lit­tle bit.”

The next crazy pub game week­end will be from April 23-24.
