Geocache Description:

A little bit of friendly competition between the good gnomes of Wirral, Cheshire and any other unknown gnome trusts or societies. At Norley Village Hall, 1pm to 4pm. Thank you to Norley Village Hall committee for kindly hiring the hall to us free of charge.

The Gnome Games will be an afternoon of fun and of course games laugh. We hope this will be an annual event and will facilitate friendly rivalry between these 2 gnome organisations (and any others that might not wish to make themselves known) rather than risking more bloody rivalry as occurred at GNOMEAGEDON (documented by SirPhilPamAndRob). The winning group will win The Ashes (the remains of the first Gnome King's pointy hat).

The afternoon will kick off with procession of the team flags, led by the respective presidents.

Then every team respresentative will have the opportunity to register their times and distances for each event to determine who will represent each team in the finals.

The finals will commence at 3pm sharp with the awards ceremony taking place shortly after the final event. There will be individual medals and an overall team winner who will be awarded with The Ashes.
