Hoppin' Good Time
For some reason, the Pendroy Invitational Track Meet always seems to involve a lot of hopping and jumping, featuring as it does a sack race and a jump rope race. When I was a lad, it had a high jump, with contestants leaping over a bamboo pole into a pile of straw. Probably couldn't get away with that these days. And of course there was the "hop skip and jump", which I later found out was known as the "triple jump" in more urbane circles.
