So you know the bands that are playing and now it’s time to let you know about the other amazing events that are set for the GWAR B-Q!
First, your Lords and Masters are thrilled to announce their very own GWAR Vodka.That’s right! GWAR and James River Distillery will unleash Arctic Snow to the masses. Collaborating together with JRD master distiller and GWAR’s master drunks, the band and the distillery have produced a potato vodka that is sure to please Bohabs and civilians alike. Arctic Snow is 80 proof and distilled 4 times for the perfect balance of flavor and smoothness. It gets you drunk too. It will be making its debut at GWARB-Q on August 20th and will be available at James River Distillery’s store thereafter.
The “GWART” Contest will be held for the very first time! Over the past 32 years, Bohabs have been creating artistic etchings and inscriptions with their puny hands dedicated to GWAR. These creations have not gone unnoticed and please your Lords & Masters greatly.
If you think you have what it takes to impress GWAR, send ONE piece of art via email. There will be TWO WINNERS!!
A panel of experts, or a bum in GWAR’S lair, will select the top ten entries from the submissions. One winner will be picked by whomever gets the most votes online via FB and the other winner will be picked by a select all star panel of art judges, including GWAR’s very own artist, the guys creating the sick fun that you crave. Bohabs DO NOT have to be present to win either prize, and there is a chance that one artist could win BOTH prizes. Email your entry to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Aug 6th for a chance to win. Only one entry per person and art must be GWAR related.The two prizes include: Relics dug out from the depths of Slave Pit hell.
Start stabbing at some paper with pens, pencils, severed limbs or whatever your feeble little minds can dig up.
The Costume Contest returns to the GWAR B-Q as minions of Bohabs adorn themselves with duct tape and tampons to win meaningless prizes and gain acceptance from their masters, GWAR. Sign up for the costume contest at 2pm at Pavillon J near the Mill Rd gate with clearly marked Event signage. The winner and runner up will be paraded around on stage in front of the festival crowd to claim their prizes.
This year will see the return of the “Spew-O-Lympics”, a semi-aquatic-flail-fest of despair! Wanna-be contestants are required to submit a short essay on why they feel they should be considered to participate in this hallowed event. Longer than 200 words ensures immediate disqualification (and dismemberment). The band themselves will read these essays while taking a dump, and judge the top selections. Find out how to enter at https://www.facebook.com/SpewOlympics.
Also returning this year at the GWAR-B-Q is the Rolling Wheels of DeathSkate Park. In an effort to bump up the number of life altering casualties, GWAR has added a second half pipe that is 6′ tall and 12′ wide with a 7′ transition. Remember you must be 18 to enter the park and will have to sign a waiver to be able to participate.
The insane freaks from the FBM Bike Co. will also be back again with multiple bike ramps to propel hapless Bohabs high into the air, just to come crashing down into the inky depths of Hadad’s Lake.
