Wacky Olympics a Scorching Success

The girls try Grass SkingBen receives winners cup from Rob

In spite of other minor attractions such as The World Cup and Glastonbury Festival, Shepton's bi-annual Wacky Olympics attracted almost 100 competitors. This was the hottest day of the year so far with shade temperature of 29-30 degrees.

With marshals, organisers and spectators well over 300 were present at the Lethbridge Memorial Recreation Field. Frequent reminders over the public address to drink plenty of water were listened to although not always with water!!. Stalls, Cream Teas, Bar and a Hog Roast all added to a very enjoyable afternoon and evening which was organised in aid of the Rec.

Last times winners the White Team were well and truly beaten this year by the Brown Team. Team captain Ben said as a team we had been practicing hard, taking onboard plenty of fluids both before, during and after the event.
