This was a really serious sport when 4 CIBG was part of 1 (BR) Corps in the fifties and sixties. Canadian teams took home more than their fair share of hardware in both the light and heavy categories. I'm sure Bruce can expand, but it required more than brute force to win a "pull."

Tug of war is an awesome time.
