Thread Name: Help: Pace Egging?
Subject: RE: Help: Pace Egging?
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.
