The Cooroy East v West Tug-of-War
The Annual East v West Tug-of-War takes place in Apex Park immediately after the Street Parade.
The two teams of dedicated Tuggers represent the businesses on the East and West sides of Cooroy and this year are championed on the East Side by The Shed @ Cooroy and the West Side by Cooroy Computers.
The teams are made up of staff and customers from businesses on each side of the tracks (and willing volunteers from the crowd on the day!)
Show pride in your side of the tracks and nominate yourself (or anyone big and strong) to ‘Tug for your Team’ at either The Shed @ Cooroy or Cooroy Computers
All competitors get a T-Shirt to show their allegiance!
