Rib Eating Contest

In the spirit of team building and community spirit GAME ON!!!
With 3 categories you are sure to find one to compete in! Winner in each category takes home a trophy for bragging rights.

Main contest takes place on the Saturday but a side contest takes place too… While the rib eating contest is based purely on fun and ego the more serious side of what we are doing for the community is raising funds for the Hospital Foundation to improve the emergency ward.

When you register, your name is placed on the Hospital Foundation Website where you can encourage everyone you know (or don’t know) to pledge in your name. The person with the most pledges wins a grand prize.


Best Emergency Personnel

Show us what you’ve got! Who’s going to take it to the finals? RCMP? Fire department? EMS? VPD? Military Police? Doctors? Teachers..our everyday heroes.

You will win a trophy and bragging rights for winning in this category.


May the Best Man Win

Do you think you can eat more than your dad, brother, best friend or complete stranger? Challenge any man anywhere and prove your prowess!

You will win a trophy and bragging rights for winning in this category.


All the Ladies

There is no reason why men should only get to participate in this tasty event. Come on ladies, time to put that salad away and dive right into the  carnivore hidden inside!

You will win a trophy and bragging rights for winning in this category.

Thrifty Foods will be generously donating all the ribs and then doing the barbecuing themselves!

Don’t wait… get involved in the fun and worthwhile event.

Registration is $50 per contestant OR you can raise a minimum of $50 for the Hospital and the admission is FREE!
