The involvement of the Billerettes in sporting events could be considered
as a natural progression from appearing in carnivals. Only rarely did
we get involved in the sport of the day, in the main we were only there
to add a bit of colour. We never imagined the diversity of sports we would
over the years be involved with, football, rugby, horse jumping, cycling, darts, swimming, dog training, tug-of-war,
wagon pulling, cricket, car racing, even Ice Hockey (yes! and on the ice).
