Wellie Tug of War (02nd Jul )
FLEX YOUR MUSCLES AND WIN AN AWARD WINNING BARREL OF BEER
Festival organiser Anne Tattersall is looking for teams of 8 to take part in a Tug of War contest with a twist as contestants will be required to tug the rope in wellies. There will be no hob-nailed boots, high heels or sneaky spikes to keep teams grounded and the soles of the wellies will go through a rigorous checking procedure prior to each tug.
Other rules for the Wellie Tug of War will include:
- No gloves or lucky charms
- No chanting or war cries
- No illegal substances or enhancing drugs jewellery or false nails
- No strong perfumes
- No name calling or ridiculing
Simon Lacey, master brewery of the Awarding winning Country Life Brewery which is based at the BIG Sheep will be presenting a barrel of his finest ale to the winning team. Simon is the most decorated brewer in the South West after winning two golds and overall bronze at the 2017 Tucker’s Maltings Beer Festival and his beer is a good enough reason for teams to participate in this fun event.
Entry to the competition on Sunday 2nd July at 2pm is £10 per team and all entry fees will go to North Devon Hospice.
