Revenge of the Lawn to Enter Cheese-rolling Contest 2007

Revenge of the Lawn and Ranting June, both of This Ghastly Menace, will be spending the gruelling winter months training at a secret location on The Downs for the 2007 Cheese-rolling Contest at Gloucester.

The object of the various events is to chase and catch (if possible) a large cheese which is released from a very steep section of the downs. The contestants either run, roll or hurl themselves down the slope after the cheese.

The Island Downs have plenty of good, similar slopes and our Island entrants will be practising throwing themselves down the steeper sections to perfect barrel-rolls and body-bouncing.

Incidentally again, this makes Revenge of the Lawn the
First Island Band to Enter the Coopers Hill Cheese Rolling Contest
and so another first is notched up by the band.
