    	Are these reels the same or similar to the ones Hugh Foss tried 
    in Belhaven?   I seem to remember him playing that sort of game but I 
    can't get to my copy at the moment - it's buried somewhere fairly 
    nearby but ...  ! :~)   He certainly did a reel of four where one entered 
    from a circle and back out again and thought he made it rotate in 
    another variation which would be something similar.
    	Wish we could try some of them again.
