BULLY HORN

THIS IS A GAME FOR A COLD NIGHT AND IS TAKEN PART
BY BOTH BOYS AND GIRLS. A "GOAL" WAS SELECTED,
USUALLY THE CART ENTRANCE TO A FACTORY. AFTER
TOSSING FOR OR MUTUALLY APPOINTING A "GOALIE," THE
PLAYERS SCATTERED AND HID THEMSELVES IN SOME
CONVENIENT SPOT EASILY ACCESSIBLE TO THE GOAL.
WHEN EVERYONE WAS HID, ONE OF THEM WOULD SHOUT:
"BULLY HORN" AND THE GOALIE BEGAN HIS SEARCH. ON
SPYING A RIVAL HE NAMED HIM AND RETURNED TO THE "GOAL"
AND CONTINUED HIS SEARCH UNTIL ALL WERE SPIED. IF,
HOWEVER, ONE OF THE "HIDERS" GOT TO THE GOAL FIRST,
THE GAME BEGAN AGAIN.
