New World Pee Shooting Champion

 

Updated : Jul 13, 2009

A novice has beaten experienced and better armed rivals to become the world peashooting champion.

Jim Collins, 34, entered for fun and surprised himself when he came out on top of entrants from as far afield as Australia, the US and New Zealand.

Mr Collins, of Haddenham, Cambs, said: "It was definitely beginner's luck. I was very surprised to win, but extremely happy."

His humble traditional peashooter outshot much more sophisticated weapons such as that of former world champion George Hollis.

Mr Hollis's home-designed device featured a gyroscopic balancing mechanism, a hyper-accurate laser sight, and "other bits" borrowed from his son's Nintendo.

"Actually I think too much is made of the technology," said Mr Hollis, an electrical engineer who lives in Witcham.

"Other things matter more - concentration, preparation, attitude, the right choice of pea. It's an all-round skill, and a lot of people think the old methods are still the best."

The contest has been held on the village green at Witcham, Cambs, since 1971, with competitors puffing peas from 12ft at a 12in target.

The championships were started by Witcham headmaster John Tyson who had confiscated a peashooter from a pupil.

VeryHappyPig was pee shooting champ in school. Well it wasn’t quite pee shooting in the class room more soggy tissue shooting. Armed with a red stripy straw, a well chewed flemed up piece of tissue and a good set of lungs VHP was lethal!
