2013 August Newsletter
Well August is upon us tomorrow so its time to update with what is coming up in the month as the season starts to gain momentum with trips to Leicester & Newport for half of us and trip to the Bretford for a few as well as plenty of local racing.
July was a big month in the history of the club when we ran our very successful youth and junior round and sitting back now i keep wondering did it really happen ?. well it did and what a great day it was. However saying that it will be nice popping up to Leicester next week and watch from the comfort of a chair than it would be organising it.
So whats coming up, please see below :
Saturday 3rd August – British Over 40 Club Champs at Norwich
The team for this meeting is Gary, Phil, Paul, Dan & Graham Long.
Our semi is at 2pm so can you all arrive by 1pm latest. (Just checked my emails and the first semi is definitely 11am start).
If we reach the final then this will commence at 4pm.
And good luck to you all on the day.
