The "£2 Tat Challenge" amusements contest was created by Scott ‘Donkey Gringo’ Lancley (the International Worlds Crazy Air Squash Champion) and Emily ‘Coach’ Gottfried, with the very first edition of the event taking place in October 2010 during the World Crazy Golf Championships weekend in Hastings.

A "£2 Tat Challenge" Order of Merit is being formulated! Suggestions on its calculation welcome...?
