Nice to see the BIG Thong Ender in the news today. ..
Men – Adam Taylor
As usual the mens competition was closely fought up to the very last throw. The typical high winds of Upperthong made the throwing very challenging. However, Adam Taylor continued to pump out some quality throws and managed to throw a huge 47ft winner in the very last throw of the day. Good work fella.
Ladies – Annie Mitchell
Annie was a surprise on the day. She made welly wanging look easy with a smooth style that was very effective. Annie just walked up to the mark and nailed it within 3 throws. She only had to step up again to crush her son who looked like beating here. Competitive mum is alive and well.
Girls ( u14) – Amy Broomhead
Amy was the first person to throw a welly on on the day. She laid down a marker that remained unbeaten in her category for the entire day. Amy is all about technique and just goes to show that brawn will only get you so far. Indeed, Amy was only very slightly short of the furthest boy and ladies throws. She remains the under 14 girls world champion. Well done.
Boys ( u14) – Sam Hobson
Sam is all about two things 1) power and 2) an unorthodox manipulation of the welly which was used to great effect to defeat the high winds on the day. He remains the boys under 14 world champion for a second year. Good work.
He came in so fast we almost missed him !!
What a GREAT day – Kids and Adults entertained from 4pm.
All enjoyed the day with great food and entertainment, many thanks to your support!
See you tomorrow up at the Cricket Field for the final day of the BIG Thong Ender and to see who will be crowned the Welly Wanging World Champion 2013.
Continuing previous years, we bought in quality food for the weekend. Handmade pork pies and jacket potatoes from a local farm, curry from Massala lounge, Brockwurst hotdogs etc
The hotdogs were a huge success and sold out on the evening. We even managed to capture a number of committee members displaying shameless love for stuffing a good sausage down their throats.
The 2013 Big Thong Ender kicked off last night in great style and really underlined that community spirit is very much alive and well in our village. A big thank you to everyone who made it an awesome night and a big thank you to Massala Lounge who provided some cracking curries.
Here are a few pics of the evening. If anyone has any more, send them in and i’ll add them to our gallery. I’d have taken more but I was too busy dancing and generally making a nuisance of myself. Enjoy.
We’ve also got a few cool videos to put online. Coming soon….
