Cheese Rolling 2010 

I have posted on several occasions about the Cheese Rolling races at Cooper's Hill, Gloucestershire in the UK but I am sad to say that the people that took over the organizing of this outrages event on the British sporting calender, have suddenly announced that this year's event has been cancelled.

According to their press release:
"The attendance at the event has far outgrown the location where it has traditionally been held for several hundred years: last year more than 15,000 people tried to attend (according to official estimates) which is more than three times the capacity of the site."

Only in Britain. Never mind the people that are travelling from around the world to participate.
You can read strong reactions to this announcement here. They suggest that anyone looking for a Cheese Rolling adrenalin rush might try the other side of the country where it has become an annual May Day (actually the first Monday in May) event in Stilton, Cambridgeshire.
