You find an apple tree usually in someone's back garden, you run in as fast as you can, steal as many apples as fast as you can, then run away as fast as you can! great fun.

And thus was born the apple cider drink called scrumpy.

Never had a copycat gang but did form a B boy crew called Auto Breakers. We got the name from 2 sources. There was a popular kids tv show on a saturday afternoon called Auto-man (from what I remember, the main guy used to phone up his computer and it would return a data stream down the phone line and turn him into a "Tron" type superhero) and there was a local car scrap yard also called auto breakers.

There's this radio show on Sunday's called "Breakfast with the Beatles". The host calls the fans "Apple Scruffs."
Although I know that has alot more to do with the Beatle's old record label, but I wonder if there is a connection.

Me and a friend formed the Dragons for about two weeks in the 6th grade. LOL, it was more like a club of two geeks who were into dugeons and dragons.

We've got one of those same shows on Sundays called "Beatles Brunch" on our oldies channel here in Des Moines! Well I guess the closest I came to having a "gang" is when I was in my 8th grade gym class and our flag football team's name was The Warriors

When I was 9/10 I was in The Milperra Boyz ( yes, tragically with a "z") , we'd cruise around on bmx's and our Powell peraltas, rock shit tags and steal Garbage Pail Kids from the shops,set fires, all sorts of kid stuff. Good times!! actually, some of the TMB tags are still around :D
you gonna pay for that?
