THIS year’s festival will be blessed with the spitting prowess presence of the current New Zealand Champion Michael “Pulp” Wardill.
In 2012 Michael spat the Aussie Champ Clint “Dark Cloud” Thompson in the grand final in Cromwell, a town forever to be known as a shadow to holiday central, Queenstown.
It was a remarkable comedown for the Dark Cloud because to win in Manjimup he had to spit a blood red pip over 20 metres, or 15, or 10, no-one was counting on the day.
Rumour has it that the Pulp Wardill has been spitting timber mill off-cuts to toughen his mouth for what he believes will be his toughest test since he played for the Otago Under 12s in the South Island junior rugby grand final in 1923.
Or was that 1983?
The three winners from 2012:
Jo “Perennial” Perry, Kieran “Big Bucks” Grant and Clint “Dark Cloud” Thompson.
This year’s event will be bigger than ever. In the crowd you will see politicians, celebrities, people you love, people you never thought you’d see again, and people who will pretend they don’t know you.
