The Events in detail....

Entry is $2:00 for each event.

Entrants can sign in at Peace Park Olympix Stadium on Saturday the 2nd of May.

  • " Tug of War" - Competing teams on opposite ends of a good strong new HEMP rope, try to drag their opponents over the centre line for victory.

  • " Bong Throw & Yell " - where entrants throw a bong full of stinking bong water as far as humanly possible whilst yelling "Free the Weed" or something similar.

  • "Correct Weight" - You've got vegetable matter, a baggie and no scales. Make up an ounce. Closest to the correct weight wins. (1 ounce = 28.3495231 grams) - NEW EVENT
  • " Joint Rolling " (Must burn from one end to the other): The six categories follow:

    • 1. Speed Roll - Roll a standard three-paper joint as fast as you can. The three fastest go into the finals. Joints must include a cardboard filter, or will be judged incomplete. If this custom is alien to you, consult a local before the event.
    • 2. Artistic Roll - Roll the most beautiful joint within ten minutes with as many papers as you like. The three best examples enter the finals.
    • 3. Roll in the Dark - Athletes are blindfolded.
    • 4. Adverse Conditions Roll - Dependant on weather conditions on the day and the judges' creativity.
    • 5. Seed Sorting - You have to get the "seeds" out of the "mull" faster than anyone else. How fast are you? (No joint involved)
  • " Growers Ironperson Event" - Involves lugging a sack of fertiliser and buckets of water around the simulated planting area obstacle course with a tick and leech infested lantana tunnel. The men's event is a 40 KG sack while the ladies contend with a 8 KG sack. The top five crawl into the final
    . A disclaimer must be signed to compete in this event.

FRINGE OLYMPIX

World Stoned Chess Championship.

The 2014 MardiGrass World Stoned Chess Championship was again a wonderful success .this year it started at 1330 and continued well after dark , the final few hours found the competitors battling it out by candlelight.
The day was blessed by clear skies but was unfortunately accompanied by a cold breeze that wreaked havoc with the chess pieces and reduced the numbers of competitors. Gerald Taylor ,the self proclaimed Goddess of the mardigrass and DIviner of the weather sorted out the rain but omitted to control the cold wind,now away in Cambodia needs to pull up his hemp knitted socks.
This year there were 27 competitors down from 43 last year and 8 countries including Australia represented.12 of the competitors were French and other countries represented were Algeria,Scotland,Germany,Israel,Poland and Cuba .
Due to some unforeseen divine intervention some Thc vegetable matter descended like manna from heaven onto the tables in the alley outside the Nimbin museum and play was officially underway. This year the competition was of a very high standard and losers such as Farouk from Israel,Alejandro from Cuba and Carl from Estonia were all of an excellent standard.
After 4 hours of heavy continuous smoking the royal herb there were 3 undefeated players.Pierre and Marius both French and undefeated on 5 wins and myself simon and current world stoned chess champion also undefeated on 5 wins.i decided to play Marius and the winner to play Pierre for the title.Whilst this game was underway at late dusk a newcomer presented himself and duly started to play against Pierre.of course we had to make sure he was suitably qualified and in this endeavour he was most enthusiastic .I had a tough match against Marius but I won and was preparing myself, by rolling a few more, for the final.creating great controversy and surprisingly Max defeated Pierre in a long hard fought game and so now came the decision as to whether a newcomer having played only 1 game and surely having a pathetically low Thc level and not having had to concentrate for 5 hours bent be allowed to compete to win the championship.
Pierre had left but I fortunately I had the guru jahlove to guide me and generosity won over sense and Max was allowed to play for the title.H e won the first game in a long hard fought game playing white.Colours were changed and the game see sawed for over an hour then by stealth of a silly tired move I made a mistake ax won and was awarded the title.
Max Dargin who now hails from the Gold Coast but is a Nimbin local as his parents ran the Rainbow Cafe in the roaring 70's where he grew up and went to school and his mother was one of the first shareholders in the tuntable falls community.
Controversy aside Max was definitely the better player on the day and a much deserved winner.
