The competitors competed with shots of towel, interpreting this rite in a sometimes meditative or traditional key or even oriental, more or less choreographic with the help of assistants and suggestive music.
The jury, of all respect, was composed by Arnold Thum (Director Cron4), Luis (Acquarena) Kathrein Ossi (at  that time Terme Merano), Armin "Banana" (at that time Mardolomit), Großpitsch Andreas (former swimmer) and Franz Niederkofler (Bergila manufacturer of essential oils), In addition to the jury, was established a popular jury, and all participants (about 70 guests) an evaluation sheet was delivered on which to indicate their own judgment on the 5 elements of ventilation.
