Conkers a hit!

Gordon and Colette got busy stringing the conkers before the competition began.  Gordon could remember putting a bit of lead in his conkers for extra weight and Renee remembered soaking them in vinegar and baking them in the oven. We didn't bother with any tricks but it seems playing conkers is a bit like riding a bike. Once you know how to do it, it soon comes back. Gordon was champion with 9 hits on the trot.
