You may not of noticed, but the 'B.A' crew now has 7 of us signed up and we will no doubt end up with 9 of us onboard confirmed for the NBF weekend
(Tight squeeze that will be, we have already banned beans n brussel sprouts    Blush   )


So you organisers . . . . . .   I have an idea . . . .

Challenge Time:-      TUG-of-War    !!!!!!


The 'B.A' team will purchase and dontate a suitable trophy to be presented to the 2008 NBF Tug-of-War champions To be brought back the following year(s) and competed for again etc

I've been having a read up on the rules etc, and they are quite simple.

Two teams of eight, (Male / Female / Mixed etc) align themselves at the end of a rope (approximately 10 centimetres in circumference). The rope is marked with a "centre line" and two markings four metres either side of the centre line. The teams start with the rope's centre line directly above a line marked on the ground, and once the contest (the "pull") has commenced, attempt to pull the other team such that the marking on the rope closest to their opponent crosses the centre line, or the opponents commit a foul (such as a team member sitting or falling down).

A contest may feature a moat in a neutral zone, usually of mud or softened ground, which eliminates players who cross the zone and/or fall in.

Each team may also have an optional ninth person (captain) who can coordinate but must NOT pull

Best of 3 x pulls = decides the winning team




Now before all you HEAVYWEIGHTS go getting clever and banding together (You know who you are without mentioning any names) there is a MAXIMUM weight limit per team, therefore you cannot form a Super Heavyweight team etc and gain an unfair advantage.

Forget the 10mm Circumference rope, two of our 16mm headropes tied together will do the trick


So NBF organisers, can we do this??
Can we get enough teams together?

We will start it off with the 'B.A' Crew -

'Griffs Growlers'

It could be a sort of highlight of the day.

We would need of course a suitable stunningly attractive Girly Forum member to present trophy and kisses as per the norm  - Suitably qualified volenteers names on the back of a 2nd class stamp please!!

We also need a master of ceremonies / referee

So if the organisers are in agreement, get yourselfs organised into teams of 8, come up with a suitable name.

We could ask the Broads Authority to form a team if they attend again also the BSS crowd etc etc

Weight limit per team:- I will research this and post a maximum weight limit in due course.
