    We have a perfect bridge for pooh sticks quite locally. We make a trip to it fairly often! (God I love being mature)

    Have you tried Pooh Chips?! Same principle obviously, but the added excitement of seeing which "sticks" get munched by ducks.
    Hmmm..... must remember to get a life one day! :shock:

    Perhaps we could get a tMP sponsored event here by getting all conductor members of the forum to use their batons for this purpose!

    I have a colleague who was deeply disappointed to discover that he's been spelling it wrong all these years... :shock:

    ah, i remember many years of playing this game... need to get out and do it again i think! Although without a stupid labrador (don't worry, he was mine...) fixing the result by jumping on one of the sticks, it might not be as fun...
