The Guinness World Records world record for the most people simultaneously throwing napkins is 492 and was achieved by Klick Inc. (Canada) at the Klick Town Hall 2016, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on 7 December 2016.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most people simultaneously throwing hats; it is 9,995 and was achieved by Coordinadora de Peñas de Valladolid (Spain) in Valladolid, Spain, on 1 September 2013.
Outdoor boot specialist, Grubs, supported Owen during the RWAS May Day Fair at Llanarthne Hall & Playing Fields, The Everything Horse reports.
Said Meirion: "I was ecstatic when I received the news we had broken the Guinness World Record. What an achievement! It was an enjoyable day and I want to thank everybody who came to the fair and participated in the attempt. This record would not have been achieved if we hadn't had all that support.
Continued Meirion: "Also a big thanks to Grub's for their generous donation of 250 pairs of Grub's boots, otherwise it would have been quite difficult to get hold of enough wellingtons for the day."
