Tullie Time Travellers: Come Tek A Deek
Today was the first Tullie Time Travellers of the New Year, we started the session by taking a last look around our War Games exhibition, which closes tomorrow, and then we headed up to THe Shed, to look at the new ‘Come Tek a Deek’ exhibition.
THe Shed is the gallery up on our Border Galleries, and ‘Come Tek a Deek’ has been put together by our Community Engagement Officer and 5 Carlisle based sports clubs, Northbank FC, Carlisle Rifle Club, Border Wheelers Cycling Club, Carlisle Cricket Club and Carlisle United.
We explored the exhibition, learning about the stories behind the objects on display, like how a Northbank player once held the world record for the longest headed goal scored and that George V visited Carlisle Cricket Club at Edenside in 1917.
We also took a good look at the Trophy Cabinet which holds some of the trophies our clubs and their members have won, some of them dating back to 1880!
Before we left THe Shed we took the opportunity to record our thoughts about the question of ‘What object do you think represents Carlisle in 2015?’ in the video shed, being the Time Travellers we had to do this together obviously!
After our visit to THe Shed we headed back to the Community Room and came up with some of our own games to start filling up our new trophy the ‘Tullie Shield’.
The games included:
Bowling (won by Burt, with an amazing 50 points after scoring 3 strikes out of 3!)
Cup and Ball (won by Leon, after we stopped counting once he reached 25 catches in a row!)
… and Throw the Bean Bag at Jill (won by Charlotte, when a well placed rebound hit my arm for 50 points!)
Lots of fun was had all round, and hopefully we can come up with a few more challenges to fill up the ‘Tullie Shield’. Don’t forget the next TTTs is on Saturday 7th February!
