Are you up to the Challenge?
The competition is open to teams of four people, teams must have at least one representative from each gender and all team members need to be at least 18 years of age.
You don’t need to be a farmer to enter.
Teams compete in timed heats, over an obstacle course with multiple challenges. Challenges may include:
- Rolling a swag
- Flipping a tractor tyre
- Milking a simulated cow
- Stacking straw bales
It’s a lot of laughs, with a competitive angle. Teams compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals and a prize pool of $500.
So grab a few mates and come along. Don’t worry if you can’t make a team, come as individuals, pairs or trios and we will help put a team together.
AND, if you are hooked, the winning team from this year’s Show’s has the opportunity to compete at a regional level, with the winners in turn progressing to the State finals held during each state Royal Show. All State winners are then invited to attend the National finals to compete for prize money and the bragging rights of being the “Best of the best” across the country! (Noting the regional and state teams have an age limit – 18-35 years).
Entry to this event is free.
