A chance for pub athletes to shine

COFFS Harbour’s Greenhouse Tavern will soon be transformed into an action-packed sporting arena.

The inaugural Greenhouse Tavern Challenge takes place at the popular watering hole on November 28 from noon, when local community organisations will battle it out for $3000 in sponsorships.

Now that’s a lot of chook raffles.

“The event has been designed to allow Coffs Harbour’s sporting and social clubs and charitable and social organisations the opportunity for some much-valued funding and the opportunity to have some fun in the process,” said the tavern’s manager Shane McCarthy.

“The challenge will be made up of a number of indoor and outdoor team events, none of which require a particularly high level of fitness or stamina.

“There will be some of your traditional pub games like darts and pool, some which require a bit of effort like riding an exercise bike, shooting baskets in basketball and tunnel ball, and some Greenhouse originals like bus pulling and keg relays.”

Mr McCarthy said teams would comprise two male and two female members and a scoring system would be in place to determine individual event and overall winners.

Team members need to be aged over 18 and need to be members or immediate family of members of the nominated club or organisation to be eligible.

“So get your teams together – more than one per club is fine – and register at the Greenhouse Tavern by November 25 or download your registration from and be prepared to have a lot of fun,” Mr McCarthy said.

“The money will be handy too. We will also have live entertainment, activities for children and of course our bistro food deals.”
