Aunt Sally and Uncle Sam – some history of the game

In 2015 the then Secretary Graham Brown received an unsolicited email from a chap in the US wanting to use some of the photos from our website. Graham passed the email to me and I corresponded with the chap over a few images and thought nothing further. We get a few emails like this – the last USA one was asking about the specification for a doll (I sent a couple in the post).

A couple of weeks ago the same chap, Rhett Krause of Massachusetts contacted the Chairman for his address as ‘I have something to mail to the League, but need an address.’  James passed the email to me and I immediately recognised the name. Oh. He’s written the leaflet!

Welcome to the Kennel


So what do you give a World Champion to say congratulations? Well the committee at Abingdon UTD Aunt Sally HQ were quick to decide that our own Barrington ‘Mutley’ Parker needed some formal recognition for his achievements and Abingdon United presented him the Special Club Events award.
Recognition from his friends and fellow tossers was always going to have to be a bit different ,but the combined brains, mainly from the Sporting Icons that are the AUFC ‘C’ team, came up with a solution. With permission granted from AUFC the Aunt Sally shed has been named ‘The Kennel’, home of the dog. A fitting tribute that will be seen by all visiting players, just as it should be.
Well done again Barry.
