Dingee kindergarten held its annual gumboot throwing day earlier this month, with the fathers of the children meeting in earnest competition in the preschool grounds.

Craig Diss won the senior section with a throw of 26.9m, while Reid Musgrove won the junior category (9.1m).

The egg and spoon champions were Mark and Reid Musgrove, while the three-legged race was taken out by Karl and Zane Tyzack.

Despite their efforts, though, the winners were unable to best the event's records, held by Ross Maxted in the seniors (28.77m) and Colby Collins in the juniors (13.65m).

Following the games, the dads were invited to stay on for a barbecue lunch with the children and kindergarten staff.
