What would a real Viking warrior king do in the same circumstances :wink:

burn their house down and pillage them?

I thought they drove around in busses visiting hospitals and primary schools before parading through the town followed by men in fancy dress then dancing Boston Two Steps all night. My, how times have changed

Chief Pict Simpson, you are a genuis and it is time indeed to revive this cultural highlight!

Agreed! Let the revival campaign start here and now.....

 

We will need a new marquee as we were told we could never use it again also we struggled the last time to get a site Big thanks to Brian Anderson for the site last time. Also the council wasn't happy and nor were the police or star rent a car. But who cates what a good time it was so lets all campaign for a another one or at least a Hascosy disco :P :P
