the more the merrier I think, the more people the bigger the event and the more we can get people to give us a hand. I think we should really invite foe :mrgreen:

Hi Guys,

I spend most of my time over on Downsizer, and thought I'd come over to say this is a fab idea :cheers:

Not sure about the sport element, but I'm more than up for the drinking and general merriment :lol: I've convinced OH that he can play rounders in my place, he's a less-active Downsizer :wink: ...

*sits back and waits for the abuse about the drinking under the table remarks from our side*

One thing's for sure, there'll be hooch a go-go from all I'm sure...woohoo!

or there's always-

"Dwyle flunking or dwile flonking is an outdoor game, which typically involves two teams of twelve players, though there is great flexibility in numbers, terminology and rules. One of the teams gathers in a circle, called a girter, enclosing a member of the other team, the flonker. He holds a broom handle (usually called the driveller), on top of which is a rag soaked with (usually stale) beer, called the dwile or dwyle.

At a signal, the girter dances around the flonker in a circle. He must flick (or flonk) the dwile with the driveller so it hits a girter team member. The score depends on which part of the body he hits. The usual scoring is three points for a hit on the head (a wanton), two for a hit on the body (a marther), and just one for a leg strike (a ripple). If after two shots the flonker fails to score he is swadged, or potted, which means he has to drink a quantity of beer from a chamber pot within a given time. After all the members of one team have flonked, the other team is put in. The winner is the team with the most points after two innings, usually the one with more members still upright.

An activity that appears to be dwyle flunking is depicted in the painting Children's games by Pieter Brueghel the Elder, which suggests that something like this game was being played in Flanders in the 16th century." :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

If we get a field with a hill perhaps we could roll home made cheese's! down. :lol:

Though I believe they had to stop this last year in Gloucester because they couldn't get indemnity insurance, in case some one got hit by a cheese??? what is the world coming to.

So you know how great Salsify is as a veg, what about Cavero Nero,great leaves all through the winter , then in Spring sprouting broccolli like flowers! Takes up half as much room as broccolli
