RIP Pasty

It is sad to announce but on Saturday 26th March Phil’s pasty was involved in an RTA with a bus on Penrith Road in Keswick when it fell out of his back pocket during the ride back from the petrol station

The pasty’s short but happy life was celebrated by numerous members of the DVATC later that day in Keswicks numerous public houses.

 

Cow Pie Beats Jim

Jim was the only person to step up to the mark on the lakes trip and take on a full portion of the Legendary George Hotel Cow Pie.

Although Jim claimed to be able to take a lot of meat, on this occasion the pie was victorious and the white flag was raised just over half way through the dish.
