Beer Stein Holding:
Each competitor will be given 2 full steins. At the judge’s signal, contestants will lift their steins and hold them straight out at shoulder height. The competitor who is able to remain with his/her steins held in the same position the longest will win his/her heat.
After the 4 team members have been blindfolded, everyone will toast to their success with beer. While they are toasting, volunteers will place ½ gallon milk jugs painted to look as if they contain milk in a diamond shaped nine pin configuration. After they have finished their toast, the blindfolded members will each take one of the Fluffy the Cow’s legs. The Sighter’s job is to direct them so that when they toss the Fluffy the Cow, they knock down as many of the jugs as possible.
Beer Stein Relay:
When the start signal is given, Runner 1 from each team can gather a total of 12 steins provided he/she can hold them which he/she will carry to a table at the opposite end of the course. Runner 1 will place his/her steins on the table and tap Runner 2 on his/her own team. This will continue with each runner until all runners have carried the steins.Runner 5 will pick up as many of the steins as he/she can hold and will carry them back to the opposite end of the course to cross the finish line.
The two Competitors sit on opposite sides of a table. Each player puts his middle finger into a strap. A referee then gives signals for the match to begin. Players try to pull as hard as they can. The winner is the Competitor who manages to pull his opponent’s elbow across a line in the middle of the table using only his finger.
When the start signal is given, a member from each team will gather up as many grapes as he/she can carry in a small bucket and race to the barrel and will deposit the grapes. Once the Stomper of the team is securely seated, he/she may place legs into the barrel and begin stomping grapes. The Swabbie’s job is to start the juice collecting in the bottom of the barrel flowing through the tube into his/her team’s bucket and to determine when enough juice has been collected to fill a wine bottle located back at the start line.
