Sydney Awesome Challenge | Task One | Completed


So, after much deliberation, and pained consideration, this was what I finally came up with for the first task of the Awesome Sydney Tour. What do you think? Take a browse through the below document and please do give me feedback...


Right so that's task one complete, but how did I fare against the other contestants? From what I can see, everyone has done a great job [good luck to all involved again]. I've also just found this which has a wealth of more information surrounding the project too, take a peek...

Check out Anthony's pub inspired take on Aussie Rules, the popular Australian sport very much like rugby. Flicking a peanut between beer bottle/pint glasses to score points, the game is simple, easy to engage with and it looks like a lot of fun.

Lottie's first task is, alike Anthony's, based around Aussie Rules, this time involving a board game type thing and flicking coins through coins instead of peanuts. Nice, it's presented particularly well and I like the board game format here.

Mili's
interesting take on cricket was also of great interest [and amusement] as she took the challenge away from the bar environment and in to the park [with a bunch of beers and oranges to boot]. Nice and it looked a ball to play too, whilst taking it from the pub and into the park is pretty cool too, something I'm unaware anyone else really took it upon themselves to do [the lure of a close by bar perhaps too much for us other contestants].

Kate's version of tennis
was of similar format to the 1000 Heads Sydney Cricket, yet it's still nice, compact and simple to play.

Also take a peek at Miranda's blog she has set up solely for this project. Her idea encompassed the fact that Hamsters are illegal in Australia [who knew!?] and is both very clever, and extremely well pulled together.

Angel's idea surrounds bowling is similarly based on a board game and involves rolling a coin onto a series of objects. Check it out here...

So how does my idea match up? Thoughts...

erm, so your entry was shorts and a surfboard? won't that look a little odd at night, going to the flicks, then dinner, then a club? :lol:
