Pride and a gen­er­ous bar tab

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

There’s noth­ing that says hardy and ‘one with the land’ more so than sheaf toss­ing.

This year’s sheaf toss­ing com­pe­ti­tion will be akin to those in pre­vi­ous years, and it will un­doubt­edly be a source of en­ter­tain­ment for all.

The com­pe­ti­tion will be held by the bar at the far end of the Wanaka Show­grounds, ad­ja­cent to the main com­peti­tor ring.

Sheaf toss­ing is cer­tainly an old favourite and en­try is free with a bar tab and that good old ‘proud’ feel­ing up for grabs as the prize!

Make your way to the main ring just be­fore 3.30pm to en­ter, ready to be­gin at 3.30pm.

So what is sheaf toss­ing? It’s a light hearted and fun com­pe­ti­tion to see how high you can toss a sheaf over a bar placed at a set height. There’s a lot at stake - the ti­tle of Wanaka A&P Show Sheaf Tosser of the Year, and the re­spect of all your mates!

Are you in? Get prac­tic­ing...
