JUST HAD A CALL FROM THE SECRETARY OF THE MEETING
THE KNUT CHAMPIONSHIP TRIAL IS CANCELLED
THE BARN AT THE VENUE IS ON FIRE! POLICE & FIRE BRIGADE ARE ATTENDING
THE JUNCTIONS AT THE A46 & A420 ARE CLOSED TO ALL TRAFFIC SO WE CANNOT GET TO THE VENUE
MESSAGE ENDS — Frank
Apologies from Bath and West of England MC.
Christmas has started early in the Talbot household forced by the cancellation of the Knut earlier today. Traditionally Christmas preparations start after the Knut when we buy and start decorating the tree the Tuesday after the Monday night committee meeting but we’ve bought the tree today and Craig, Gareth and Becky fitted it in the stand and it is twinkling away in the corner of the lounge.
We would like to apologise for the late cancellation of the Knut today, Nipper was putting the Castrol arrows out on the A46 just before 8am and found Grose Lane closed at both ends due to the Fire brigade attending a fire in the Barn at the “old” start area and we therefore had no access to the “New” start field so had no choice but to cancel. We telephoned everyone who had pre entered and put a phone number on their entry form, messaged facebook and the chattering and asked for the word to be spread. Unfortunately we couldn’t get hold of everyone so I am sorry for those who had a wasted journey.
At this stage it isn’t possible to run next weekend at this venue so we have reluctantly decided not to run the Knut this year so we will not be cashing the cheques of those who had already entered.
Our apologies once again and wish you all and your families a Happy Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
