For all the distress of today's world, there are still people among us who excel at things like exterity, patience, craft, or physical strength. Some of these guys may, for instance, be able to bear a 200-pound load on their chest while standing up and not using their hands. And there are many others we want to present to you. We have prepared a multitude of contests for folks who want to put to a test their muscle, craft, appetite, or sense of humour. We will keep track of newly set records, and will, in co-operation with the Dobrý den Agency, submit the best of them to be entered in the Guinness Book of Records. Events centred around beer will also be fun, and in fact we are planning to run a new one, a Beer Trek of sorts. TOPVAR will be the beverage of the day, and will add its glamour to two kinds of contests:
One will feature local beer celebs trying to break a record in their discipline, another one, geared to the public, will be staged in the municipal park. Everyone is invited to try their hand at whatever event they like.
Here´s some information on some of the disciplines:
A) Beer Show - beer trek, beer run, beer drinking, lifting an rolling
a beer keg, Finnish relay, drinking 0,5 and 1,0 litre glasses of beer,
