The DUMMIES Guide to Frog Racing
The Frog Race party game was launched by J W Spear & Sons Ltd. of Enfield in 1973. It consisted of four numbered frogs of different colours made of plywood with a hole in the upper part of the frog through which a piece of cord ran. One end of the cord being secured to an immovable object, the other end of the cord (about 10-12 feet away) being held by the jockey.
The objective of the game being for the jockey to tighten and loosen the cord thereby causing the frog to move towards them. The winner being the first frog over the line to reach their jockey. Since 2013 the Club has organised a Frog Racing Night each year, which is well attended. There is always much good natured competition to be the Club's Frog Racing Champion!
