The URT DIG explained.
This is a competitive hole digging competition that leaves little room for friendship. The top 3 Women and Men in each division will receive prizes and the accolades that are sure to follow. Bring your own equipment to the events. The shovels are to have "NO" moving parts, this isn't a science fair.
4 Divisions (Event Itinerary) 3 HEATS
1. PLASTIC (ages 2 weeks - 9 years old). Start time: 11:00 AM. Plastic shovels only. Please bring your own shovel. KIDS DIG FREE, i do not feel the need to introduce them to the world of capitalism...just yet. Digging duration: 6 minutes.
2. HANDS ONLY (all ages). Start time 11: 30. No shovels or digging aides allowed. Just your mitts and your wits. This is where we will separate the children from the adults. These are the digging warriors, the purists who don't want to taint the earth with metal. Please bring gloves, you can and will get a little bloody without them. Some will be provided. Digging duration: 10 minutes
3. PAWS ONLY (all ages, dogs only). Stat time 11:30. This is an URT DIG first and sort of an experiment. If you think you can get your hound to dig then this is for you. And yes, I do realize that the HANDS ONLY and PAWS ONLY will be starting at the same time. I think both could find some motivation from each other, don't you? Digging duration: 10 minutes
4. METAL ONLY (all ages): Start time 12:00 This is the main event, also the event most likely to have someone lose a toe. So please wear shoes. This is where we will see the world's most prodigious diggers. So come prepared and come hungry. Bring your own shovel. No moving parts. You can only have one digging device. Digging duration: 10 minutes.
To the victors go the spoils.
How we will measure is still being debated.
