Over the weekend whilst the competition is going on we have other activities.
Find out more in the marquee
Fancy winning some prizes and taking part in an awesome competition that is open to everyone who comes along to the Hurley Classic.
At the Classic we have awesome fun with ‘The Mighty Hurley Horn'.
Every 20 to 30 minutes from 10am to 4pm of the Hurley Classic we will be calling out either a competitor or someone who has registered at the event desk. The announcement will be “'NAME' has been selected for The Mighty Hurley Horn”. The Mighty Hurley Horn will then be blown. From that point a clock will start and the person has 5 minutes to get to the main marquee and sit in ‘The Chair of Hurleyness'.
If the 5 minutes timer has elapsed the person called will not get chance to sit in ‘The Chair of Hurleyness' and win prizes.
Behind the chair is an area screened off where the ‘Voice of destiny' will be. The Voice will pull the name of prizes from a randomizer, calling one every 10 seconds. The prize value may go up or down. The person in the chair shouts stop when they are happy with the prize.
At some random point, as the prizes are being called, The Mighty Hurley Horn will be blown again signalling the end of the game. If the person in The Chair of Hurleyness has not called stop to select the prize offered, they walk away with nothing.
At the end of the Hurley Classic prize giving any prizes left over will be given by selecting random names and random prizes. (so it is worth staying right to the end of the event.
