Otherwise known as the Conker Classic 2015
Excellent organised by the infamous 'Kaiser' Bill Pollard.

Another weekend and we find ourselves back up in Northampton, along with a few familiar faces.

Image
That's Trev on the cake......well he was the reigning conker champion.

These are my conkers......well not mine but Jamies' glad we got that sorted...
Image

The great thing about the conker classic is that anything goes....
Image

All welcome
Image

Theres cake....kindly laid on by The Bakehouse antique emporium
Image

Once refreshed with tea and cake, the serious matter of the day begins.....the conker hunt begins
Image

for the smallest conker......
Image

and the Northampton tree vandals appear
Image

Image

Image

The garden of The Pomfret Arms was full to bursting with eager conkerers
Image

The ABC of fun, ALE, BIKES and CONKERS
Image

Image

Trev and Gary with their personalised conker playing platforms for the vertically challenged!!!
Image

did you spot the portable gramphones which provided the perfect background music for an afternoons conker playing...

The final four Trev, Gary, Brett and Matt
Image

Image

The final, no Trev this year
Image

To the victor Gary (Tornado Tamer) Kennedy .....the spoils
Image

and to the loser.....a match with the smallest conkers
Image

It turned into a competition to see who could inflict the most pain :shock:
Image

some padding was needed
Image

John decided he needed some more protection
Image

A well earned bottle of specially brewed conker ale to the winner.
Image

Well that's all for now.....another fab weekend. Cheers to Bill and everyone involved making this a great weekend.

Oh what fun we had :D

Great weekend as Elaine has said. Those Northampton folk know how to organise great events.
Thanks to Bill and the Bakehouse for the cracking cakes. The Pomfret arms for letting us invade there Saturday afternoon.
and everyone else that made us welcome once again.
