Time once again for our gentlemen to show their mettle. The tea brewed and, after the ‘Biscuitgate’ fiasco of 2015, we reverted to the tried and tested ‘Cows’. Tony Thompson – visiting author – gamely signed up to duel despite having no clue as to what he would be doing. Well played, good sir, well played.
The duellers,and many of the spectators, were conversant with the rules of Tea Duelling which ensured fair play and good spirit, as well as healthy competition. Tactics were discussed, debated and argued.
Thank you to the ‘Cosies’ who ably assisted the Tiffin Mistress (and to Ms Buckland who inadvertently became our chief Keg washer), and to Eric of 9K, Ms Morton and Ms Hainstock for being our photographers.
Congratulations to Jacob [11N] our 2016 Tea Duel Champion, and to Angus [10K] the runner-up. Aside from a few splashes, splatters and splodges, it was a good, clean fight. gg everyone.
Let the games begin….
Our visiting author looks perplexed!
Some of us weren’t taking it that seriously…
Heats over, now it gets really serious
After the quarters it was down to the final four Jacob v. Nathan and Angus v. Firdavis:
And now the final…. Jacob v Angus.
It was a short, sharp final with Jacob the winner – splatter beating splash
