The Best Fun You'll Have on a Beach This Summer
It's the middle of January, and you are looking for something different to do. Why not gather a few friends, play some ball games, toss a few hoops, compete in a race or two and enjoy a bit of a picnic. Perhaps on some of the best golden sands along Adelaide's coastline. Perhaps at Maslin Beach. Only one catch though!
Yes, it is on again. The 2018 Pilwarren Maslin Beach Nude Games will be held on Sunday 14th January from 12 noon to 4pm at South Australia's only legal nudist beach at Maslin Beach providing competitors with yet another chance to get naked and make money. And in order to ensure a level playing field, all aerodynamic clothes, swimsuits, performance-enhancing leggings and sports bras are to be to left to one side, and entrants are to gather at the start line with hat, sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen.
Events are for all ages and gender, and include many traditional favourites. The perennial beach favourite, the Frisbee, makes an appearance with distance and accuracy competitions. Following on from that the races begin with that awkward moment where competitors put aside their nakedness and jump into a sack for a race down the sand. At the end of this event, competitors have a chance to find a partner, tie their ankles together and compete in the iconic three-legged race across the warm sands of Maslin Beach.
Balloons are out next with balloon racing, firstly as individuals and then as pairs who seek to transport the balloon between their legs and over the course distance. The balloon fun continues a bit later in the day when the water balloons arrive and are ultimately tossed between partners in an attempt to see whose balloons last the longest before bursting. The water theme continues with the water bucket over the head and the water fill competitions following in quick succession, both of which are preceded by the awe-inspiring and potentially messy doughnut eating competition.
Time restrictions meant it wasn't possible to include all events, and some popular ones like 'tunnel ball', 'hula hoops' or 'dodge ball' missed out this year. However, there is also room in the games' schedule for the team's tug of war contest and several rounds of the crowd favourite 'best bottom' competitions. Competing in gender groups, the males and then the females cover and hide their top halves with a huge cloth before revealing their bottoms and legs to the judges. With some support from the crowd, the judges then select and mark the winners with a style somewhat similar to 'pin the tail on the donkey'.
In addition to the events on the day, there will be a marquee selling soft drinks, bottled water, souvenirs and a sausage sizzle with all proceeds going back to cover the cost of running the games. Small money pouches will also be available for purchase for storing money and keys for those people without pockets, which I guess is probably everyone at some point!

Entry to the event is free, with the only rules being that everyone is there to have fun. Spectators are encouraged with the option to remain clothed or to be adventurous and enjoy the beach as nature intended. Further details are available from the Pilwarren website or from their Facebook page.
