Leeds Castle, the Finale.

Hi folks,

well to end this story of the joist, I don't know how but the Reds won.

Galloping out of the arena.

The Victor leaving with the Standard.

At the end of the event, they all rode out of the arena at great speed.

This was really at the beginning but I am sure you won't mind it at the end, there is a good reason.

As you now know this is Sir William at the begining of the show he called for 12 children to help him. Well you can imagine what happened, all of the children about 100 of them ran into the arena.
they where all given various things to carry depending on their size, swords, heads, rings, get the idea?  He then paraded them around the arena which they all enjoyed.

In amongst them was our Daisy clutching a ring for all it was worth.

Notice the Saracens head behind Daisy, I was waiting for a scream.

At the end of the show Daisy had her picture taken with the King, I am not sure what she thought of him. He was a bit bigger than her.

Finally with the Queen she much more relaxed.

Well that's all from Leeds Castle, I hope you liked the trip.

nite nite, luv Mike XX
