Well done to 2023 winners ABR from Rosebud. They created the ultimate sandpit which was auctioned off with all proceeds going to Country Education Fund Edward River Region. 

This year four teams will battle it out to build the Most Magnificent Mini Mobeel to be actioned off Saturday 5th October at 11am, giving families an opportunity to check them out prior to the auction. All proceeds from the auction donated to our local Edward River Country Education fund. The winning team being crowned ‘Tradies of the Year’. The Tradie teams must consist of three individuals and must ensure that at least one team member is a competent, skilled individual/tradie that will oversee their team.

The Tradie Challenge will begin at 9.00am Friday 4th of October and includes a short lunch break with the conclusion of the Challenge at 3.00pm. This allows each team a total of 6 hours to complete the build with a break for lunch. There will be a toolbox meeting and induction at 8.30am which all teams must attend.

The Mini Mobeel needs to be built to be useable and serve the purpose for child’s play, therefore must meet safety standards, and be built to a high quality to withstand the outdoor weather. All building materials and tools needed will be supplied by the Deni Ute Muster, you are welcome to bring your own tool belts. You cannot bring in your own tools.

The Mini Mobeel design will be up to your team.

  • Big enough to fit a couple of children at once.  
  • Must have an element of shade.

These items can be anything that will enhance your design, be useful and make it stand out to the judges. Your teams addition items list must be emailed to the ATG coordinator for approval.

The winning team will walk away with $2,000 and a trophy declaring them ‘Tradies of the Year’. Judging will be based on design and workmanship.
