Unexpected Surprises

"One time the Vicar walked into the tent and helped himself to a Judge's lunch.  He probably thought he deserved one and he thoroughly enjoyed it.  But Mrs Gunnell’s was fuming.  We were a lunch short!"

"In high winds the secretary's team (were) found holding the tents down!" 

"One year we had high winds and the tent (did come) down.  We had to serve the teas from the back of Jeff Farrow's cattle wagon."

"... we had a complaint that there were cow pats on the field (at the horse show!) - we did suggest that this may help with speed if necessary ..."

“There was a dance on Saturday evening. And at the last dance (one year) they had a streaker. My friend and I ... missed it! We never did find out who it was!
