Competitors have to throw three peas and it is the best of three which is counted. The organic peas look set to give even the record holder a run for his money.
The record is currently held by Lewes resident Mike Deacon, who threw a pea 44 metres last year.
Mr Deacon said: "I will be competing again this year and I'm hoping and firmly expect to keep my title."
The contest, open to all ages, is governed by strict rules including:
No kicking, spitting or blowing
Throwing or flicking to be by hand only
No batting, slapping or punching
All peas to be supplied by the management
No genetically modified peas (or competitors).

Bystander, I think you're conflating 3 different events - dwyle flunking, the spaniel race and the beer relay.

Invading armies are famous for "interbreeding" as you so delicately put it. I'm sure there's plenty of Norman dna as well. Please... more
