  • Where: Village Cafe, Teton Village
  • When: Wednesday 2/29/12, 4:20pm
  • Event Details

At 4:20pm in Teton Village, the 2012 Gelande Quaff World Championships kicks off featuring past champions, regional qualifiers from around the world and event sponsors. If unfamiliar with Gelande Quaffing, the object of the sport is to slide beers down a makeshift bar to teammates waiting on the other side to catch them. As beer mugs fly towards competitors, they must catch them in the air, drink them as fast as possible, and run to the other side to slide a full beer to their partner. Style points count in this contest and freestyle points are awarded for creativity and costumes.
