Argoed boasted the Welsh quoits champion.
The venue was The Argoed Arms, with the game being played in a natural amphitheatre behind the pub; this theatre held at least 400 people.
The object of the game is to see who could get the quoit, which was thrown, as close to the marker as possible.
After the international, the Scots would do the sword dance under the old gas lamps, which as children we found fascinating.
I believe that this game was played up to the early 1960s at Argoed.
In conclusion, Argoed boasted a local man by the name of Jack Price who was Welsh Quoits Champion for many years.
