Southland Stag Willis Halaholo failed to beat the SIT students in the competition.

Winner Danielle Walker received a 24-pack of L&P, which she said she would either share with her classmates or keep for a cocktail evening later in the week.

"I can't believe I won."

Students were able to make their own mussel patties to enter into a competition to find the tastiest patty.

The tug-of-war brought out the competitive spirit between the two Stags, with a triumph for Taylor Adams' team.

Fortunately there were no injuries during the tug-of-war contests but MC Kane Johnson told the crowd there were Southern Institute of Technology nursing students there just in case.

Stag Taylor Adams won the four-legged race with his team.

The SIT Talent Quest heats kick off today at noon, with finals on Friday.
