Bank Holiday Sunday Fun!!!

Good Evening All
We had a fantastic fun day today with the village raft race and then the BBQ back here.  The weather wasn't too good, but at least the rain held off for us to get the BBQ done, in fact it just started to rain as we were taking the last of the chicken drumsticks off the barbie, it was too windy and chilly to sit outside anyway so we'd set everything up to eat inside.  I managed to get a few pictures well 94 to be precise of the raft race fun, and here are a few to share with you.
 
There were 6 rafts in this years race, they have a nice leisurely row for about 1/4 of a mile until they reach the end when there are a number of obstacles and the added bombardment of flour bombs and buckets of water. This obstacle is covered in washing-up liquid so it's pretty slippery...lol.

 
The rubber ring obstacles, this is where they normally all fall in!!

 
This poor race official gets it every year with the flour bombs, but he always makes sure the culprits get a good soaking back, and if they are really cheeky and get too close to him they often end up in the canal itself.

 
My cheeky nephew and no he wasn't caught in the crossfire of flour bombs, he poured a bag of flour over himself...lol.

 
Steve and his brother get in on the action of bombimg the rafters.

 
My niece about to get her dad, a quick pic before I moved out of the way.

 
Good hit from my niece with a little help from me too, as I'd just recieved a flour bomb to the back courtesy of my BIL.
Another of my BIL's getting a dusting, he's not normally so white on top.
And finally one more raft.
Hope you enjoyed the pics, as you can see it was all fun and thats the main thing whatever the weather.
I'll be back tomorrow morning with my first GD card for the Pollycraft challenge, thanks for stopping by!!!
