Manjimup's 2015 GlobeVista Australasian Cherry Pip Spitting Competition

How far can you spit a pit?

Better Bigger Brighter



This year’s Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival is the 15th.
And they said it would never last.

The spitters will make their mark again, on the tarmac, on the road, where the pips land.

And don’t forget the first prize in GlobeVista Cherry Pip Spitting Championship of Australia and All Other Freedom Loving nations of the Entire Universe is: free ticket to New Zealand to spit on their champs. Sorry, Against their champs.

This year the local champ will fly to Wellington in March and spit olive pips. The Big Spit will take place in Palmerston North, a town once verbally harassed by John Cleese.

But all is forgiven and John will be there to spit along with the best Australasia has to offer. Okay, maybe I made that up, but he will be mentioned, there is no doubt.
To spit a pip, be it cherry or olive, makes no difference, a spit is a spit, by any name.

ARE YOU READY?

THIS years festival will be different.
The usuals will take place and even new stuff.
We have been challenged.
Accepted.
Be prepared.

THE WORLD RECORD?

UNBELIEVABLE

The longest spit of a cherry stone in competition is 28.51 m (93 ft 6.5 in) by Brian "Young Gun" Krause (USA) at the International Cherry Pit-Spitting Championship at Eau Claire, Michigan, USA in 2004. On the same day in the freestyle competition he spat a stone 33.62 m (110 ft 4 in).

YES, IT'S SPITTIN' TIME AGAIN!

What can we expect this year?

The big spitting Clint World's Best Practice Thomson will be back to defend his Globe Vista Australasian Championship belt.


They sent this bloke, Mike Wardill (right), a couple of years ago and he did fine but this year, guess what, Two Big Guys.

Shane and Jack Jordan know how to chop, spit, and talk.

Back home in Taranaki Jack should be mayor and if he wasn't so young, he would be.

Steve Hollander from Hilux New Zealand Rural Games said Shane and Jack could do anything - play rugby, cricket, arm wrestle, even bake a pavlova.

This is Jack Jordan.

LET THE SPIT OFF BEGIN!
