Teams also participated in some Shemozzle obstacle course activities. If you are wondering what in the world Shemozzle is, the Shepherd's Shemozzle is part of the annual Hunterville Huntaway Festival which in years past has seen competitors swallowing raw eggs, munching on dry weetbix washed down with a can of warm beer, huhu bugs with cold cooking oil or a sheep's eye and cream. This is definitely a spectator sport for me! Teams checked into the pit stop at the picturesque luxury resort Terrace Downs located in Canterbury.
