25 people entered the courtyard prepared for battle and after 5 hard fought rounds Dan Sharp our Commercial Director was crowned champion of the World, well the Mirus conker World, as Mirus Conker Champion 2011.
Dan showed that preparation really does pay off and his trainer lace was the difference when it came down to cracking other peoples nuts.
The final was a tense affair and despite only limping through with cracks everywhere Craig Kilborn put up a strong fight but the earlier rounds had taken their toll on Craigs’s once mighty nut and Dan emerged victorious.
Thanks to all those who took part and to referee Paul Tomlinson for keeping things moving along and supplying drinks and Paul O'Connor for BBQing the burgers.
Until next year, keep polishing your conkers!
