For those of you who have been on the moon for the last five years. The Marillats of machen have held a sprout eating competition after their Christmas lunch for the last five years, this is an international event drawing competitors from England, wales and many other countries in Africa and the fars east. A cup is awarded and enscribed with name and sprouts eaten, the currant winner at 90SP / 2008 is David Rogers followed by Vivian Davies( a new contestant and our only marathon runner) with a credable 65, followed by a former winner Ian marillat with a disappointing 56. Unsportingly Ian contested the result by claiming that David had used mint sauce, the whole thing got ugly but was sorted out by the rules committee.YOUR ON THE SPOT REPORTER.
