"Egg Throwing first commenced in Swaton circa 1322, but since the 2005 World Championships inception the sport of egg throwing has grown dramatically and is now being practiced all over the world. The event is hosted by the 16th Swaton Vintage Day." All forms of strange egg activities are held including Russian Egg Roulette. "Ms Opal Upton Brooker of Grantham will instruct presenters how to play Russian Egg Roulette where 5 hard boiled eggs and 1 raw are offered. Each contestant takes it in turn to choose an egg and then smashes it onto their own head. Opal, following years if training, is able (without touching) to detect the raw egg by merely passing her hand over the top of them." But egg roulette is just the start of the mayhem, "Also expected to be featured will be the Static Relay event where a team has to pass eggs one to one along a line in the shortest possible time.Other sports featured at the Egg Championships include the Egg Trebuchet Challenge, The Throw and Catch event and possibly best of all, throwing eggs at a live target:Points are awarded for the area struck. None for face, 1 for arms and legs, 2 for body and 3 for the groin."
