Why do people play five a side football, Dress as Romans in renactments, Go windsurfing, restore old cars Etc.?

We are the ones getting the most out of it. It is great fun, great fellowship, and usually leads to a brilliant singing/music session. You also get to visit the best real ale pubs in the area, whilst getting free booze [well we do:-)].

And as well as doing something enjoyable with a dozen or so others, you get the great feeling of keeping something alive. In my experience most people who come and watch do enjoy it and appreciate it, but that is not the main reason I do it.
