Date: Friday 2th September 2003
Time: 9:30pm
Arrival at Ulverston was uneventful and the chip shop was soon located, before heading off to the Swan Inn for a fine selection of weird and wonderful sounding beers such as Tag Lag and Shifting Sands. Then it was back to the chippy for the more hollowed legged of the team. It is not often that we get two goes at the chippy.

Time: 10:30 Saturday
Location: Broughton-in-Furness
Nice little village and square where our friends from Wales showed the team how the Welsh dances should be danced. We were the only team to find the back door to the pub, and what a pub it was. Eight real ales on tap including Timothy Taylors and Coniston Blue Bird. 

Time: 2:30 Saturday
Location: The Britannia Inn, Elterwater
Another excellent pub where we performed a Walbottle Seven sword Rapper with slight modifications owing to the fact that we only had two working summersaulters instead of the usual three.

Time: 9:30pm Saturday
Location: Ulverston for the feast and what an excellent meal it was with beer form a local micro brewery. Peter really enjoyed him self, as usual, although the speeches were too much for John

Time: 11:30 am Sunday
Location:  Cartmel
Lovely little village and a good crowd watched all of the teams perform their signature dances before retreating to the local scout hut (in the middle of the race course) for lunch.
