I think its either go to the marquee or go down to the paddock, as that's where most of the usual disclaimer paperwork is

Just to confirm arrangements

Fri AM session approx 930 am to 1230
Fri PM session Approx 1330 pm to 1630 pm
Sat AM 900 am to 1200 pm

We will be using Curbs own timing gear with both single and double laps.

Terry Rickard will help me on Friday, and I understand Trevor Shortt will do so Fri PM and Sat. Any other helpers will be appreciated

Let's hope for decent weather :roll:

So all went pretty well on both days, Friday PM and Sat AM being fully booked. Appologies for minor timing problems, we will have our own gear fully sorted for next year.

My thanks to all who assisted, particularly Terry Rickard without whom we would have struggled.

I think everyone had a good time, despite some of us doing a bit of "grass cutting"!
