Here's a night of fun and entertainment any true Queenslanders won't want to miss. The Origin and Australian great, Petero Civoniceva has issued the Sportsman's Challenge at the Lonestar Tavern starting at 5.30pm Friday 26 September, 2014. Let's hope some New South Welshmen think they're good enough and come along so we can have a few laughs.
Entry to the fun in the Tavern is free but a donation of $40 to the Mater Foundation supporting prostate cancer will see you really get into the fun of the evening and issue your personal challenge to Petero.
Once you make your donation and are issued with your official challengers t-shirt your name goes into a bucket – hope it's an ice bucket because that ice might come in handy afterwards! Then when you get the call you go onto the stage and spin the wheel. Whatever you spin up is your challenge which could be, but is not limited to:
an arm wrestle, right arm then left arm
throwing 3 darts for the highest tally
mini golf with a 3 putt chance where the player who holes the most wins
throwing 3 magnetic darts over 20 feet and the highest tally wins
best of 3 ball throws through holes
best of 3 at scissor, paper rock
wii bowling with the most strikes after 5 attempts the winner, or
a 3 ball challenge where the least number of shots to get the 3 balls in wins.
But it could also be something altogether different – it all depends on your luck on the night, the wheel could end up anywhere (Luckily for Petero I've got a sore elbow or I might have tried for the arm wrestle!).
Once you have spun up your challenge you then move to the apparatus and wait for the start of play. The action will be full on until 7.00pm; so start your training regime now because that's going to be like a light training run for Petero.
When it's all over the plan is to have a group photo with everyone wearing their t-shirt and Petero in the middle. Any spare time will be taken up talking and relaxing.
This is an amazing opportunity to meet one of the great champions and nicest guys of our time in a pleasurable and relaxed environment.
