All registered barbacks competed in this exciting first event. While in sets of two, barbacks started at opposite ends of the room near a table filled with bottles.. Barbacks from both ends of the course crossed each other, at top speed, falling, grabbing and clawing for the glory. As they ran back and forth from opposite ends, bartenders called out names of brands and the barbacks needed to retrieve the bottles as fast as they could and then the bartender called out more bottle names. After this one event many barbacks were eliminated after an intense timed obstacle course event.
