Nope; everything to do with the way Excel (used by the organisers not me :wink: ) assumes that when you drag copy a cell that you want to add 1 to the value they copied :roll:

Weather Forecast

:shock:
Are they likely to run a sprint when the temp will be around freezing point and there’s snow and sleet falling from the sky?

It’s a Nat A event too, I’d be surprised if anyone in a single seater wants to go out on a fast track in sleet and snow.

We are thinking they may cancel....but admittedly that is a big risk.

Were you thinking of the hotel or somewhere else :?:

In my experience Hotels can be poor but this one might be the exception. Menu looks OK on line :)

Was thinking more towards pub food. Hotel menu looks great to me, but a bit OTT for the kids.

No places close to the Hotel that I can see on Google maps so it might mean a drive out somewhere then back to the hotel for a few beers maybe :wink:
