This day is a celebration and day of remembering 50 years of magic. It is a day to remember the people who gave us such wonderful days and memories.
The Flying Toad Challenge
What is it?
The Flying Toad challenge is going to be a fun exercise for our members to take part in on the 50th anniversary day, whether they attend the 50th or not. We have 100 little plastic toads ready to be given a name and character profile. sponsored by our members and then launched into the challenge on the day.
The Flying Toad Challenge
The cost per toad is £2 and this will go back into prize money for the winner, runner up etc. There is also a trophy that you can add to your garden!
The process text will be the same EXCEPT for the part that says about there will be a prize etc because that's changes and I have mentioned the prize money at this point.
On the day
On the day, the sponsor will be required to compete with another
sponsor, by launching your toad via a sling shot – not an ordinary sling
shot – but a sling shot that requires you to sit down with the sling
shot fired between your legs as in the water bomb sling shot! Not very
elegant. But bound to be fun and entertaining!
The toad that lands the furthest distance away, will be put into the next round with the loser set aside. This process will continue until we get down to the final two toads and we will find our eventual winner then.
To sponsor your toad, please fill in the form along with your payment and submit it to me and I will upload you and your toad/s to the list.
This will then be uploaded onto our website for all to see.

He says he will wipe the floor with the rest! Russell Barnes SIR REGINALD TOBLERONE “Top Hole” Sir Reggie here, high in the Swiss alps!
