Washer toss will be back as an event at Tide Fest in 2018. Arguably the marquee event of the 2017 festival, the Come Home East Hants Association in cooperation with Hants North Baseball Association worked to set a Guinness World Record for the Largest Washer Toss Tournament. The record was originally set in Wise County, Texas with 486 participants.
At Tide Fest in 2017, 612 participants took part in the largest tournament, and the documentation is currently being reviewed by Guinness World Records. After a weekend of throwing washers it was Mike Gulliver and Romeo Leblanc of New Brunswick who took home the $2,000 top prize. Pat MacDonald and Kenny Newcombe from the Annapolis Valley finished 2nd collecting the $750 prize.
It is our hope to have the Guinness record in hand for July 2018! Although we won’t be seeking to reset our World Record Attempt, we do invite all those interested in being part of the World’s Largest Tournament (recreational and competitive) to come be part of a special event this summer!
Prizing and Tournament Format TBA!
We are currently working towards the tournament prizing, format and registration costs and will announce it shortly! Please stay tuned for updates
