"Exhausting"

2002

33", 994kb

An exhausting experience on the way to the TourA brand new selection from the 2002 tour video kicks off with this one, the story of what happened to one of the touring parties less than one hour from home. By deciding to avoid Stonehenge with all its associated slow traffic in Summer, Adie Barrett decided the old A30 would offer a faster route. This if fine until his little old car decided to fall away while crawling through the wilds of Wiltshire....

    

 

"He's lost it"

2002

29", 1.05Mb

The ridiculousness of the situation gets to Beefy....Whilst awaiting repairs to the "Lardy Car", so named due to the accumulated weight of the occupants (see "Exhausting" above) they decided to find somewhere to eat for lunch. Deciding the French cafe was not an option at 12.00 per starter, they flew off to the Mayfly Pub on the river Test at Chilbolton. During lunch, a chance comment rather tickled the Vice-Captains' fancy and it was all he could do to hand the camcorder to Ben....

    

 

"You're Old"

2002

1'30", 1.43Mb

Two Vice-Presidents getting all they were woth on TourThe story so far: the "Lardy Car" took over 8 hours on Friday to reach its destination. Then on the same night, Martin Weston and Gary Pudney, the two Vice-Presidents who toured with us, disappeared without trace around the same time as Jason "turn in early" Walliker. The latter usually gets fined for going to bed early and he would have again had not Martin and Gary's story of "wandering around the town until 4 am" been blown out of the water by the owner of their digs saying they'd (and we quote) "turned in for bed - HOURS AGO!". Needless to say, both received a hefty fine at Court the next morning, while Jay Walliker was quietly forgotten about. This Mini-Movie shows a sample of the vocal abuse we gave 'em in the Watering Hole on Saturday night. A full recording of the highlights is below ("Old Medley") where it besomes clear they were not the only targets.... 

    

 

"You're Shit!"

2002

28", 980Kb

The worst over of the Season - Stand up Mr. Cheeseman! The world-famous "You're Shit - AARRGGHHH!" award goes to the poor unfortunate whose bowling provides us with the most laughs - and the opposition with most runs - off one over. The record still stands at 25 (Adie Barrett, Isle of Wight, 2000) but Kev Cheeseman tried hard with this over at the Mount Hawke game on Tour. To be fair, the fact that the man at the other end had scored a huge and fast Century only the day before didn't help matters much. We went on to win the game, simply because we exhausted him with a fair smattering of dreadful deliveries (stand up Mr. Pudney jr!) ....

    

 

"Old Medley"

2002

2'54", 510Kb

Martin and Gary receiving quality audial abuse at the hands of their hosts - us!What started as a "couple of beers" at the Watering Hole on Perranporth beach on the Saturday lunchtine turned into a horrendous 12-hour marathon (from whence this little audio experience originates) that lasted until kicking-out time at midnight. It is lost in the mists of time and aroma of good beers who exactly started the stream of abuse at around 8pm, but Adie Barrett got some as well as the two Vice-Presidents on tour, Martin Weston and Gary Pudney. By the way, they'd booked digs that they'd hoped was nowhere near us - and turned out to be as close to the Ponsmere gates as you could wish to hope for! Of course, they were hammered for that as well in Court the next morning. Tough luck, lads and see you next year.

    

"Hat Slapping"

1998

33", 994kb

The Hatslapping DanceThe last of the little movies is a popular one from 1998, in fact the only one so far unearthed from the 1998 Cornwall tour tape. The 3rd match was versus Perranporth, which we lost. But before losing the plot our changing room was filled with such merriment as the "Traditional Hat-Slapping Dance" from Howard and Dave Hurren. Howard led, Dave followed as only one can gamely try.....

    

"Shirley"

2000

3' 18", 582Kb

Peter Lambs'"Shirley"To round off we have another perennial, partly as it is a low-bandwidth one. This nice little mp3 emanates from the soundtrack of the 2000 tour video where our party had enjoyed a nice meal out at the Hare & Hounds near Havenstreet. In the coach (well, big taxi, actually) on the way back to our digs we embarked on our own medley of songs inspired by Peter Lamb. He'd been struck by one barmaid's resemblance to a long-ago ex of his named Shirley. Thus the theme of the drive back was born - and Peter wished he'd never been born.
