Blueskin Bay blokes will be out in all their hairy-chested, knobbly-kneed glory, vying for the title of “Brutey of Blueskin” at Sunday’s Blueskin on Show day.

At stake will be the titles of Knobbliest Knees, Hairiest Brute, and Mr Puniverse, on the way to the awarding of the Brutey of Blueskin Bay crown.

Local businesses are encouraged to enter a team. The Moponui Studio Homes team has prepared, with tutus, head-dresses, and fairy wings, to take on all-comers.

The Brutey of Blueskin Bay event is set to be a comic highlight of the annual Blueskin A&P Society show day, at Bland Park, Waitati, from 10am to 4pm on Sunday.

There will be a fruit and vegetable contest, children’s entertainment, pony rides, pets, plus assorted displays. The show will involve businesses, councils, Waikouaiti Coast Community Board, and local schools.
