North American Conkers Champion

So I’m officially North American Conkers Champion. I won the title in a fun-filled, action-packed, nut-smashing tournament in the beautiful Historic Gardens of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. The tournament, run by the Annapolis Royal Conker Club, is in its third year, and they’ve already announced next year’s event for October 17th, 2015.

You can read my article about last year’s competition in the September/October issue of Saltscapes.
