The Wimpole Scything Festival includes the mowing competitions and will be held over the 23rd-24th June 2018. The marathons, quarter acre and an eighth of an acre competitions are held anytime over this period but will be timed from when the competitor starts to when they finish. No changing of blades is allowed but you may replace a broken snath. Extra peening is also allowed but will be included in the overall time, so peen before you start.
The sprint races will be held on the Sunday afternoon and will include the 10 x 10 and the 5 x 5 . Other races include the team competition, strimmer vs scythe and various others which we can dream up.
