I had a great weekend too, but really, is it not a game of toy soldiers?
When my Sister-in-law and wife picked me up to take me to the airport, half way through the award ceremony, they found it unbelievable that someone would do this. They are both primary school teachers and have to deal with children like this on a daily basis.
My Sister-in-law stated," it would be fair enough (to cheat) if the loser gets dragged out back and shot."
As far as I know this did not happen, it was not in the rules pack, I think the person who finishes last still gets a free ticket to the next event. Mind you, Pete would look the part in a Commissar uniform.
