The game is played with one team joining hands to form a ring, with a member of the other side in the middle of the circle. They must put their beer soaked dwile on the end of a stick, and as they spin around attempt to hit an opponent. Points are scored depending on which body part is hit – but if the target is missed twice in a row then the competitor has to down a half of ale as quickly as possible.

Yanny Mac was the Jobanowl, and teams vied for the coveted Stuart Sneddon Memorial Trophy. There was music from Owl and Wolves as well as a family barbecue.
