Thanks for your interest in competing in the elite fifth-and-a-half annual Yak Brewing Pond Skim National Championships at Mt Buller. Despite being recognised as the National Championships, you don't actually need to follow an athlete pathway from your local pond skimming club, through the state league, to reach national glory. Just give it a crack. Do it. Do it. And win MEGA PRIZES (see mega prizes section below).

  • Custom music tracks for your run can be played by the DJ! Details available upon registration.
  • Helmets are compulsory
  • DON'T DRINK AND SKIM

Following historical tradition since time immemorial in 2015, all competitors (18+) receive 2x Yak Brewing drink cards for the Official Yak Brewing Pond Skim National Championships Après Party. Note the use of the word  "après" which means after you compete.

Categories

Three categories – junior (under 18), open (18+), and teams (18+ multiple competitors at once).

  • Open & teams entries: $30 per skimmer. 2x drink vouchers included.
  • Junior entries: $25
  • Registration is prior to the event until all places are filled (i.e. first come first served - don't cry if you miss out)
  • Last entries accepted until day prior at 5pm (unless sold out prior)

All competitors including all team members will need to sign the waiver and collect a wrist band from the Village Ticket Office on the morning of the event (Sat or Sun) from 8:30-10:30am.
