The World Marbles Championship 2004 Excitement is building steadily in advance of the championship on Good Friday. A local tradition, the championship has been taken for the last two years by a German team. Details of past tournaments and the history of the game from the Marble Museum in Tinsley Green.
i'll trade you 6 of my multi-colour aggies for your large green catseye...
I'm afraid I won't be in the UK over Easter (as if I ever am -- I don't live there fercryinoutloud!), so I'm hoping someone can post some piccies.
On a similar note, the world pooh sticks championship this weekend saw the Czech team take Gold.
