The Worshipful Company of Poulters' Inter Livery Pancake Races 2018
It was an incredibly cold and wet day and the correct decision was taken not to run the races but to see who could toss a pancake the most in a minute. Now as Clerk and Team Captain, I was excused from this interesting opportunity but the Pipe Makers' team of the Immediate Past Master Charles Miller, Fourth Warden Jerry Merton, Assistant Elise Rasmussen and Freeman Courtney Rasmussen put on a splendid display on behalf of the Company. Indeed, the IPM managed 56 'tosses' of the pancake which we thought would get him safely through to the final but alas beaten by the Master Poulter. However, Freeman Courtney Rasmussen was given a Special Commendation in the Novelty Costume Competition, narrowly losing to the Furniture Makers' entry. It was a fun morning but we were all glad to finally get indoors and to some warmth. Well done the Poulters' for putting on a great day!
