Yes, you read that right! The sport of gumboot throwing is a serious business and we’re lucky enough to be hosting the South Island Champs at the Show again this year. Head over to the Entertainment Zone next to the Endurocross Arena during Show Day to give it a go yourself. Anyone can have a go between 10am and 2.30pm and the final will take place at 2.30pm. There are cash prizes up for grabs and the top three throwers will get flown to the New Zealand Finals during the Hilux NZ Rural Games in Palmerston North next year.
The New Zealand Agricultural Show is run by the Canterbury A&P Association.
The Canterbury A&P Association is a membership based organisation, which celebrated 150 years in 2012. The Association's mission is to further the progress of agriculture in Canterbury and New Zealand, through the annual New Zealand Agricultural Show.
