2010 LawnMower Beer Championship - DNS

There are some events which hinge on very specific circumstances for them to take place. You have to have the perfect combination of weather, timing and competitors for it to go off. These include, but are not limited to, the Quiksilver Big Wave Invitational, most popularly known as “The Eddie” in memory of Eddie Aikau at Waimea; or the newly christened “The Jay at Maverick’s Big Wave Invitational at Mavericks in memory of Jay Moriarity. The stipulations for the match to held are simple: within a certain window of time, if and when the conditions get HUGE ENOUGH, the pre-selected competitors have 48 hours to get their butts in the water and compete.

Sometimes, it just doesn’t happen.

So it was with the 2010 LawnMower Beer Championship. With the heat and drought we had over this Summer, the grass never really got high enough to pull a massive all-morning “Sweatin’ Like Nixon” horticultural/agricultural/landscapational event. Now that we're into Fall ... I'm calling it a DNS = Did Not Start.

For it’s worth, the line-up probably would have been:

Victory Whirlwind Wit [
Defending Champion]
Harpoon UFO Hefeweizen
Southern Tier Hop Sun

I've been enjoying this all Summer, but never took the opportunity to put them side-by-side-by-side

My apologies, but stay tuned for 2011
