A year had past with the defeat of 06 still aching in the legs. MR2OC were back at the East of England show ground, Friday night the usual beers and laughs, Saturday the team got together in the club marquee for a training session with a brand new team from last year. A night on the beer again then Sunday the team made our way to the main arena for a warm up followed by the rest of the club in full support. The first pull against some very young people and we were through to the next round. The second pull, the team dug in, worked as a team and in unison pulled our way into the final. Remembering what had happened the previous year and with fresh legs we entered the arena again against last year’s champions the Celica OC. With a team talk and the support and cheers of the club the guys were ready, the first pull was static, neither team giving an inch, stamina won through and the team slowly inched the rope back to the whistle. The second pull the Celica OC were tired and the team dragged them across the arena. At last winners, the hard graft and cheers had got us through.
