A division of the American Field Crumpets League.
Est. 2001 by the field crumpeters of Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.
In short, field crumpets is a silly game.
Active New York field crumpeters can currently be found on the campus of Cornell University, in the city of Ithaca, an excellent locale for snow crumpeting. It is the site of the first known crumpetization east of the Mississippi, located about 1000 miles from the birthtown of Leawood.
How Field Crumpets came to New York
One early crumpeter from the neighboring city of Overland Park first encountered field crumpets arriving late to a friend's birthday party. The party was Robbie Overton's; the arrival was Tau Kung; the year was 1997.

Rules of the Game

Field crumpets growth in New York was greatly accelerated by the Cornell University Marching Band. The game was introduced at a band picnic where interest quickly exceeded supply, and people took turns playing. The following year, with returning crumpeters, rule explanation was more fluid, and the game spread further.
When a vehicle impeded marching trombones, they were known to yield and respectfully crumpet salute the vehicle.
