What a lovely day and the Cavaliers were busy again, in the square at 7am to setup for the day ahead, breakfast in the Black Horse then
The Cavaliers theme this year was Sweden to celebrate 50 years of Dartington Crystal in Great Torrington -
Our excellent team of Cavalier dancers had been practicing the ABBA routine for the past 3 months and what a show they put on well done lads!
After a well deserved break for a drink or two came our afternoons event, keeping with the Swedish theme we staged the Great Swedish Challenge. Teams of 2 from the crowd entered to win £30 for 1st place and £20 for second. Each team had to dress in the swedish clothes and wear a helmet then run a meatball and spoon race to the top of the square where a jigsaw of the Swedish flag awaited (they didnt know it was painted on both sides!). When the flag was completed they ran down the square where they had to blow a peice of glass, as they do at Dartington, then run down to the finish. It was a great event enjoyed by all and our thanks go to those who entered.
The winners are below collecting their prizes from our Chairman Mark Keeley;
