Cliddesden Charity Conker Bash: 23rd November 2013

Woohoo! The maiden flight of a stack of 6 Brassingtons
- one of Andrew & Sandra's wonderful wedding presents.
6 Brassington kites

- sorry to have to report that we were all helpless with laughter!

These high jinks following the successful test flight of Andrew & Sandra Scott's wedding present Brassingtons
and prior to the Jolly Farmer Conker Challenge where we all suffered glorious defeat.

Sometime GOG chums get roped in to participate in some weird "non-kite" activities...
The Conker Bash - the formula for success turned out to be "aim to miss" (strange but true)
Keith has a bash at Sandra's conker
2nd formula for survival: Wrap up warm and partake regular doses of anti-freeze!
