Recreational Versus Medical Pot Users

With the Big Hemp Rope!

Sadly, in 2018 police don’t want to compete in this famous event. Well, it is a bit embarrassing to keep losing to the stoners!

The tug is followed by the Hemp Olympix First Heats of the Bong Throw and Yell and then the Growers Ironperson Event.  Hosted by S Sorrensen and Alan Glover.

Events Growers Ironperson – Involves lugging a sack of fertiliser and buckets of water around the simulated growing area obstacle course with a tick and leech infested lantana tunnel. The men’s event is a 40kg sack while the women contend with an 18kg sack. The top 5 crawl into the final on Sunday.

Bong Throw & Yell – Entrants throw a bong full of stinking water as far as possible whilst yelling “free the Weed” or something similar.

Followed by the Fringe Hemp Olympix with Nic the Hippy, Bigbong, Gary the Plumber, Dr Smooth, and Baldenstoned all assisting in this fast growing event. This begins with the Beard and Dread Stash. How much can you hide in your hair anywhere? Who can hide the most the best? Followed by Correct Weight where contestants attempt to fill a baggie with as close to an ounce as possible, 28.349 grams.  You’ve got vegetable matter, a baggie and no scales. Closest to the correct weight wins! Seed Sorting, and the wheelchair obstacle course where contestants will attempt to score a Licence To Care which is extremely rare and impossible to get in Australia.

End of the SKIPione era celebratory skipping comp on the big hemp rope.
