Calling It's A Knockout Fans...
Teams needed for a Knockout Time
Published in the Stamford Mercury December 5th 2010:
FANCY having a laugh with your mates by playing It's A Knockout style games while raising money for good causes?
That's exactly what you and your friends could be doing if you take part in the Rotary Club of Stamford St. Martin's fundraising event next summer, which will be based on the popular game show from the '70s and '80s. It will take place on Sunday, May 22nd 2011, at Stamford Rugby Club on Hambleton Road.
Fun Fun Fun all the Way!
Although the activities for the day are still to be finalised, they could include a human washing machine where people are flung round a massive spongy replica. Others may include hurling wet sponges at each other using a specially designed bungee device or trying to knock your opponents over with a huge soft wrecking ball. There is also a football shoot out with the chance to score extra points if the ball passes through the "bonus holes" and the chance to help a giant chicken collect as many eggs as it can while dodging straw bales.
Charity Knockout Event
Each team needs to raise at least £400, which is only £40 each for a team of 10. Participants must be at least 16. Registration requires a deposit of £150. Spectators are also catered for with a bar, barbecue and entertainment, which is yet to be finalised.
