GOLDFISH RACING

 

I had a great day running the Goldfish Racing at The Beergarden in Surfers Paradise yesterday. 

Goldfish Racing... What The!... I hear you saying. 

It's a great new concept were 16 contestants race each other to battle to take out the grand prize of $100. 

Bait fish are saved from there holding tanks at the pet store from being fed to larger fish and given the chance to become regular racers at the Sunday session at The Beergarden in Surfers Paradise. 

Two racing lanes are set up with a holding bay at each end...

 

16 contestants are then drawn out of a hat to be the racers for the day...

Peggy is the ref on the floor and i'm on the mic calling the shots and running the races...

My Mate Neilo was our life guard on duty to make sure everyone was safe and no drownings took place... 

Racers were asked to select there fish...

Once the fish have been selected they are placed into there respective holding bays...

A racing straw is selected and a stance is acquired... 

On your marks... get set... BLOW!

Racers assist there fish by blowing behind them to help them reach the finish line...

First on across the checkered flag wins... 

Get set... Blow

Our iconic Meter Maids in Surfers Paradise made an appearance and entertained guests with a celebrity race...
