ADULT GAMES & ACTIVITIES

Barrel Dash

**Great Daddler Challenge Event**

The Barrel Dash is approximately a ~50-yard dash while holding a keg-like barrel*. Fastest female and male times at the end of the festival will each win a medal!

*Barrel weight varies according to gender and weight-class

Barrel Toss

**Great Daddler Challenge Event**

The Barrel Toss is done by tossing up to four keg-like barrels over and clearing a pole vault standard. There will be no time recorded if you do not clear all four barrels. Fastest female and male times (that clear the most barrels) at the end of the festival will each win a medal!

*Barrel weight varies according to gender and weight-class

Barrel Pull

**Great Daddler Challenge Event**

The Barrel Pull is done by pulling a sled with wheels with barrel-like kegs* on it for approximately ~50 yards. Fastest female and male times (that pull the entire length of the pull) at the end of the festival will each win a medal!

*Barrel weight varies according to gender and weight-class

Beard Dunk

The Beard Dunk will be done by dunking one’s beard in water quickly and moving over to an empty barrel and straining it out. This event will be scored based on the volume of water collected. Each turn will be comprised of three dunks. The individual with the highest volume of water collected within a turn at the end of the festival will win a medal!

Tug of War

Tug of War will be conducted with teams of six individuals. Tug of Wars will take place with three different categories: male, female, and coed teams. There will be no awards for this daddle game.

Beard Contest

The Beard Contest will be conducted by a panel of judges and will be based on the following criteria: fullness, length, and style.**

Each of the criteria that are scored will be purely subjective to each judge. For example, a judge may find a thin beard more favorably than a thick beard and thus score the thin beard higher within the “fullness” category.

A scale of 1 to 10 will be used for each of the categories (with 10 being the highest) and with a maximum of 30. The individual with the highest point total at the end of the festival will be awarded a medal!

Any ties will be broken by a bonus category – color (again, purely subjective to each judge).

*Artificial facial hair is not permitted.

Daddler Costume Contest

The Daddler Costume Contest is a tribute to Dan and Daisy from the novel “Where the Whiskey Runs” – a tale about Peoria’s famous history from the early 1900s! The contest will be conducted by a panel of judges and will be based on the following criteria: creativity, accuracy, and detail.**

Each of the criteria that are scored will be purely subjective to each judge.

A scale of 1 to 10 will be used for each of the categories (with 10 being the highest) and with a maximum of 30. The male AND female with the highest point total at the end of the festival will be awarded a medal!

Any ties will be broken by a bonus category – novel (which part of the novel storyline was your favorite) which is again, purely subjective to each judge and based on a 10 point scale.
