Bart the Plumber!

My recent post about the Itchy & Scratchy graffiti in Manchester reminded me I spotted this bit of Simpsons bootleggery in Rhyl last year.

A day out in Rhyl

I had a lovely day out in Rhyl, North Wales yesterday. Once the torrential rain had cleared it was a pleasant afternoon for a wander.

I met up with my friend and minigolf partner Peter 'The Crazy Aced Assassin' Jones. While we didn't get to play any minigolf we did have a couple of games of Air Hockey. Peter is renowned in the minigolf world for his skills on the Air Hockey table and he comprehensively defeated me two-nil in games, with wins of 7-3 and 21-3!

I've never known a game go beyond nine-points, so how we got to play a match for 24-points I'll never know. I was 18-nil down before I got a point on the board. Still, at least I drew the last six-points of the game.

The Air Hockey I lost 21-3 on had the paddles secured to the table!

We had a walk around the town and seafront and took a look at the miniature golf courses there.

We've been visiting the seaside town of Rhyl in Wales since September 2009 and have been to a number of minigolf courses there.


There are a mix of miniature golf options in Rhyl, with everything from Crazy Golf to Grass Putting to Adventure Golf. There's also a new indoor minigolf course in an amusement arcade.

Last week I swung by the Putting Green at the North Wales Crown Green Bowls Centre in Rhyl.

The bowls green next to the RNLI centre was the Putting Green when we first visited

Back in September 2014 the course became the 349th played and 583rd visited overall on the Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.

We've now been to 911 courses.

The sign at the course said 9 Hole Putting Green / Llain bytio o 9 twll. There are a number of ways to say Miniature Golf in Welsh.
