This event is for Preschool age participates. Participates can try their luck at tossing the caber and throwing fergie pins. Participates in these two events will go into a draw for a prize at Mittagong Tenpin Bowling
Cost: $1 = 2 eggs
An activity for the brave and those not scared of a little mess. Working in pairs, one partner armed with a fresh raw egg, at a given signal the egg is thrown to your partner and hopefully caught unbroken. Partners with unbroken eggs, move one pace apart following each successful catch until a winning couple emerges. At the end of the day, the winning open pair of the day will be given the opportunity to break the Brigadoon record in centre oval.
Current Record Holders
- Junior: Trent Webster & Daniel O’Keeffe – 41.5m (2004)
- Open: Michael Thompson & James Thompson – 59.6m (2007)
Participants line up one at a time, at the starters command, run to the first ‘stone’, lift the ‘stone’ on to the barrel (‘stone’ must remain on barrel). As fast as possible participants place all remaining ‘stones’ on the barrels. Winner is the best time for each division. Certificates will be awarded for each division.
Contestants stand on a barrel facing away from the direction of throw and similar to tunnel ball throws the ball between both legs. The longest distance counts however the ball must stay on course in the allocated alley. Certificates will be awarded for each division.
For the rural lads and lassies. Standing with your back to the high bar and using a pitchfork, contestants try to throw a hay bag over the bar as far as possible. Each contestant has three tosses. The best of three throws to count. During the Toss the bag must not be touched with hands. The bag must pass over the bar without touching it. Distance is measured from the bar, the furthest distance thrown wins. Certificates will be awarded for each division.
Cost: $1 = 3 Balloons. Partners face each other, one armed with a water filled balloon. Partners throw the balloon to each other taking one step apart after each successful catch. Certificates will be awarded.
Events for gentleman, ladies, lads and lassies. Competitors must be wearing something tartan. Announcer will call starters to the starting line as per program for the dash across the oval. Certificates will be awarded to each division.
