JULY

 

NAVAL GUN CARRIAGE RACE

 

 

We finally did something dangerous again!

(if you don't count fire-breathing and sliding down the world's biggest slide that is).

We've had it with safe meetings where the worst that could happen is the nib of your crayon breaks.

WE WANT TO CUT OUR FINGER TIPS OFF, CRUSH AT LEAST ONE LIMB, EVISCERATE AT LEAST ONE GASS MEMBER.

(eviscerate - disembowel a human or animal - as in "The Gass member was eviscerated by the gun limber in the race"  -  just for clarity)

 

AND WHAT BETTER WAY THAN IN A 'NAVAL GUN CARRIAGE' RACE

On The Great Lines, followed by essential life saving surgery, then dinner.

Note to Medical Team - Defibrillator on hand please, extra plasters too.

 

We met the Sea Cadets on The Great Lines at the appointed time and they gave us a demonstration of the whole thing before allowing us to compete in part of the event.

We huffed and we puffed and we blew the Gun and Limber down - or at least we wrenched the wheels of the thing!

The winners of the event were Gary and Owen.  They won fair and square by simply being the ones who noticed their little Limber was half the weight of the big Gun,
Oh! and by wiggling the axle around when the opposing team come to fit the wheel back on.  Small technical issues.  Well done to the father and son team.
