AFC 2020 recap

Relive all the glory

We did it. We went legit. We held the first full scale Australian Finska Championship - well sort of. Technically we did our first little one back in 2011, but boy we really outdid ourselves with this one. We had an impressive Xnumber of entrants - making up Xnumber of teams. Ukko (Finnish God of weather), blessed us with an absolute scorcher of a day - our athletes pushing through the heat, sprays of sweat whipping through the air with each chuck and toss.
Though a fiercely competitive and serious sport to most, many treated the day with with jove and laughter - as can be seen by the range of witty team names. Some special mentions we'd like to make are; I'd Hit That, Pin Pals, Finska This, The Tossers, Morning Wood, Whakamana Express and of course Drop A Log.

See you in 2022, chuckers...

We were pretty darned chuffed with how The Australian Finska Championship 2020 went down, and the responses we got from the punters confirmed that the competition debut was a classic success. Rest assured we’ll be hosting another bigger and better AFC for 2022, so if you back your wood chucking game, we’ll see you on the turf very soon.

$ Cha-ching $

What’s a pro sporting event without prize money? Up for grabs was a healthy $1000 which was scooped up by our champions, Drop A Log. Our runners up, Wave Stars, also left with a solid 500 Finska Bucks, and there were plenty of cheeky product giveaways throughout the day.
We had the fellas at Young Henrys supplying the coldies - which went down a treat on that cooking February day - and the hotdog man plus the legends from the OzHarvest Food Truck provided the sustenance. Our competitors feasted like true athletes, dining on pulled pork burgers, wraps and hotdogs alike.
