The rules remind me of a miniature village set-up we visited once. The only thing they didn't put on it was 'smiling and fun, not allowed', but we sort of gathered that.
This lot don't seem to be taking much notice anyway.

Great write - I sure I have read similar rules somewhere, everywhere - so risk averse these days.
