Challenge Barrel and Sled go on Show
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

July 9, 2016:

Are you entering the Tar Barrel Challenge on August 6th? All comers are invited! Here's the barrel and sled soon after it was built this morning. It will be on display in The Square every Saturday, (and back of the Tally Ho during the week) if anyone wants to take a look prior to the day. On August 6th, teams of four will pit their skills against the clock by pulling a barrel up to the Square, overcoming an obstacle course and then pulling the barrel back to the start. A special Facebook page (called "The Tar Barrel Challenge 2016", naturally) is gathering momentum and you can get more details there, including an entry form. Registering early saves money. Or, teams can register on the day. Or call Dawn Stevens on 01837 810265. Children's races will start at 2pm, adults from 4pm. There will be entertainment and music from 5pm till late, also a BBQ. Thanks to all who helped build the sled this morning especially Andy Gilbert.
