DO YOU have what it takes to be the 2012 Miss Beerfestabull?

With a prize of a $10,000 up for grabs, event organiser Clint Jensen expects ladies from across the state to vie for the title.

The Miss Beerfestabull competition is the brainchild of Mr Jensen who put together last year's Beerfest at the Innes Park Country Club.

Following the success of that event, Mr Jensen has announced the newly named Beerfestabull will be bigger and better than before with a range of new initiatives set to attract visitors and entrants from all over the state.

"With $10,000 prize money, we are confident we can attract up to 125 contestants for the Miss Beerfestabull competition," he said.

Mr Jensen believes he can raise up to $500,000 for charity through the competition.

"Contestants need to register by May 25," he said.

"Entrants will each raise funds for one of four charities. They will then be judged on the amount they can raise for their chosen charity."

As part of the competition, the top 10 fundraisers will be revealed at a Beerfestabull Ball on September 15, with the winner announced at the festival to follow.

Beerfestabull 2012 will run over two days at the Innes Park County Club, from September 22-23.

The event will also feature 80 different beers, plenty of spirits, bull riding and amusement rides.

Touted as the biggest Australian beerfest and professional bull-riding event, Mr Jensen said the bull riding would be a highlight.

"I've joined forces with the Professional Bull Riders, which means the bull riding will be of the highest level," Mr Jensen said.

The organiser hopes Beerfestabull can capitalise on the gap left by the now defunct Bundy Thunder and believes the event can attract and even eclipse the crowds and interest the boat race brought to the city.
