Or how about local sheep shearing contests? They take that pretty seriously over here. Would I lie? Click here if you don't believe me. The Stratford contest was on Sunday, the 28th of March. That's all preparation for the World championships that take place ever 2 or 3 years around the world.
Sadly I have missed out of both of these events. *smirk* Sorry, I'm a city girl and don't get enthused about things like that.
However......I did manage to get to the first annual Eltham Cheese Rolling Contest. It makes sense that Eltham has an annual Cheese Day, since it is the home of 2 large cheese factories. And they had the perfect place to host the contest. I was surprised at the amount of folk that showed up to watch and to participate. There was also a contest for 'best dressed' racer.
So, now I can say I've been to a cheese rolling contest. Say 'cheese'!
