World Conker Championships 2012 Cancelled
but local Conker Competitions spring up!
Sad to say that the 2012 World Conker Championships has been cancelled for lack of a suitable venue. All efforts were made to find a new home for the competition after the last-minute cancellation last year due to very windy weather.
Players registered to play in 2012 will be contacted to ask if they wish to play in 2013. If you don't ask to play in 2013, your entry will lapse and your entry fee will be donated to charity. There is a venue provisionally arranged for the 2013 competition. Look out for news!
But on a very positive note, several local pubs are holding their own Conker Competitions:
- The Ship Inn, Oundle - click for more details
- The Rose & Crown, Oundle
- The Shuckburgh Arms, Southwick
- The Bull Public House, Peterborough
I'll add information on these competitions as soon as I have it!
