15th July – Maurice Simons Memorial Pull – Eastville, Lincs.

Saturday 15th July – Eastville Village Hall, Lincs.

The Maurice Simons Memorial Pull

Well done to all the pullers who turned out to make this event a great success…. current and ex pullers of the Federation including pullers who hadn’t touched a rope for years. It was great to have Sharon and members of Maurice’s family with us including Son Mark who was pulling on the rope… well done Mark. Big Thanks to Adam Baxter and Trevor from the Duke of Wellington for organising the event.

Thanks to Shaun for bringing an LCS team with a Triple F flavour thanks to the team known as the Cube, also the Duke of Wellington and Nomads teams which had many ex pullers pulling who came to support the day.

When it was all over the Winners were LCS with the Cube in Second and the Nomads and Duke of Wellington tied in joint third place.

Back at the pub following the raffle and a few drinks it was time for the presentation:

Adam presented the Winners Shield to LCS and Sharon presented the Maurice Simons Memorial Cup to the best placed local team which was the Cube from Sleaford.

An enjoyable afternoon was had by all and there is talk of trying to get ithe event to Spilsby Show for 2018!
