GUEST,Andrew Help: Pace Egging? (40) RE: Help: Pace Egging? 23 Apr 03


Another place in Northern Britain where they still do egg rolling is Ulverston, Cumbria. I took part once. Have no idea what you had to do to win but I certainly didn't.

There has also been mention in the thread of jarping. Thats a tradition my dad of North East family origins carried into our family. A tip - let the other person do the smashing - I reckon the passive egg usually comes off the best.
