2018 Peckham Conker Championship round-up
The 2018 Peckham Conker Championships was unequivocal conker-shaped fun done the way only Peckham can do it at the Brick Brewery. 50 players; 250+ smashed conkers; 248 smashed dreams; 2 winners; 1 injured forehead (apologies to our junior contestant whose forehead came a cropper).
The biggest congratulations goes to our two winners: Noah, who won the junior competition with his vinegar soaked bomb of a conker; and The Rock, who won the seniors with - well - a rock of a conker (aged and tiny).
I’d v.much recommend getting prepared for the 2019 Championships, as one thing that was learnt this year is that ‘those who tamper win’ - as both winners brought their own victorious conkers, and both had been carefully tending to them (mostly by pickling them in vinegar!). Lesson learnt for 2019 . . .
