Sunday 26th September 2004
Park Games & Scumbag Olympics
After not happenning this late April as
is the tradition, the annual game-playing punx picnic was hastily
organised for Sat the 25th or Sun the 26th of September. Well on our
way to autumn, Saturday was a wash out as it pissed down with rain
all day. So we re-grouped and met up the following day in Brixton's
Brockwell Park. Games this year included the infamous Drunk Brick
Throwing Contest, 3-legged race, a treasure hunt (that included getting
total strangers to either sing and dance or introduce us to their
dog), 50 yard dash with a full pint glass etc etc. Unfortunately one
punk house in Brixton won about all the prizes (darts trophies that
we found in a squatted pub in Norf London) so we think that they must
have cheated. Hopefully we'll have another one next year, probably
more smack dab in the middle of summer as both April and September
are a little wet for picnics. See you then!
