1974 Leerdam, Holland

Incredible footage that I have never seen and did not ever dream existed.  The first tournament took place in Leerdam, Holland before the first recognised tournaments began a year later in England.

 

Taken by Laurie Howard (RIP) on cine film his daughter Lin has salvaged from the loft and placed on FB for all to see.  For me this is an absolute treasure find.  There is also some footage from 1975 on the next page.
