Digbeth O’lympics 09

Amazingly, the Digbeth O’lympics staggered into life again at the end of September. This time with added debauchery courtesy of Kent at the Rainbow. I was solely responsible for the aquatic events so all that carry on was nothing to do with me.

Typically it has taken 5 months to get the bit of filum below which I thought might be fun and capture some of the essence of the day hence the lateness of this post which has held up my blogging for months but i think some order is important.

Top fun on the Custard Factory lake in the Cardboard Coracle Challenge. I was in charge of that.

Launching the Coracles

Doesn’t look like Digbeth does it?

Kent Davies of The Rainbow and I – frightens me.

I did also however have the task of announcing the founding of The Free State of Digbeth at the end of the O’lympics Awards Ceremony. Now it had been a long day where under the nature of the games many pubs were visited so I might take this film down at any moment.
