Remember jungle gyms made out of metal pipe and fittings? Ours had the added interest of being installed on a bed of cinders. On any given day, you felt like you hadn't been to school unless you were bleeding somewhere . . .

Great article! :D

Were 'young people' allowed to play?

I'm picturing myself as a 'concerned parent'.

I'd really want to make sure that 'dear old dad' would be

legally allowed to accept 'Little Bobby's' firkin prize! :lol:

Surely (don't call me Shirley) they were. But a lot of the players were grown-ups. Those ole Roly Hole guys in the annual Tennessee tournament (using hand-ground flinties) went over to Tinlsey a few years ago and won it, much to the good-natured horror of the Brits.

:D
