Rustic sports were held until five o'clock and then the whole party sat down in a large building decorated with flowers and banners. There they were served with tea, after which the sports were continued. At the conclusion of the sports all returned to the building where every man was served with 2 pints of XXX, the lads with 1 pint and the boys with half a pint.
