The results of the annual Boxing Day Games, organised by The Kaffirs of Cookham Dean and held on the Old Cricket Common, Cookham Dean between 10.00 and 12.00 on 26 December 2003, were as follows:
Winners, The Stonefield Choppers, were awarded the prestigious
"Loo Seat", an old wooden toilet seat which carries shields for
every winner since 1968. It was initially presented for the Boxing
Day inter-pub football match that preceded the current annual games.
The games, which are kept secret until the day of the contest, included a
blindfold piggy back race, a spiders and string game, the barrel and plank
challenge, Space Hopping and concluded with the usual obstacle race in
which the eleven teams of eight players must go under a rope, over a wall
of bales, through a hoop, under a scrambling net and then recover a Satsuma
from a bath of water using only their mouths.
