What would you do with a helicopter??

Simon Grundy in the morning                                                                              

Here’s what you missed........

Simon was very impressed with my riveting yet somewhat random headline story this morning. The Chinese Helicopter Tournament came to an end yesterday. What exactly is the Chinese Helicopter Tournament I hear you say.......Well it’s a yearly event held over 3 days which sees over 20 domestic helicopter pilots compete in six events to test their skills. The highlight of the event is the opening of beer bottles. Now this seems like a very simple task, however, in this instance, the bottle opener is attached to the side of the helicopter!!! The pilots have to open 5 bottles in eight minutes and the one who opens the most without damaging the bottle wins! I managed to find a brilliant video which Simon uploaded on Twitter. Simon was so intrigued about this tournament that we tried to figure out what on earth the other 5 events involved.......We’d be impressed if we saw a helicopter shearing a sheep or even milking a cow?

Onto a more serious topic....baking!!! Simon, Stephen and I brought in cakes yesterday that we’d baked as part of Rainbow Trust’s ‘Big Hour’ and we were selling them in reception. Well I’m pleased to say that my banoffee pie reigned supreme!! This isn’t official, however it looks like mine did the best considering that Simon was eating his own rock cakes that had been untouched, and Stephen was buying his own cornflake cakes.

And finally, you may have seen a very large seagull roaming around The Bridges on Friday. Well he was back out again yesterday and decided to go skiing at Silksworth Ski centre, and also try his hand at a bit of bowling at MFA Bowling in town. Go to our Name the Seagull page and check out his shenanigans.....

He’ll be out in South Shields today so keep an eye out for one very large seagull playing Quasar.....
