Pull - can't get too low down - don't want a grass stain on the oh so expensive kilt!!! Jim at the end - he did end up with a grass stain. OK we lost the first one - swap ends to see if we were trying to pull them uphill.

Now we're showing some form - amazing what the practice we got in the first round can do for you. We still lost, but the Wallace boys (3 are brothers) told us we'd given them the best contest they'd had in some time. Now it's the turn of about 50 kids to see if they could do any better than the Clan Moffat "Volunteers" did.
