I’ve had to step in & take over all domestic duties as Phyllis has her right forearm in plaster [picking plums, stung by a wasp, shot back down the steps & overbalanced & fell over = distal radius fracture] so as I was driving round Castle Combe in a parade of 45 Saabs, when the phone went it was in my zipped up fleece pocket on the back seat! So I couldn’t take Phyllis’ call! & that was another visit to RUH A&E on Saturday, as Clive was admitted to A&E on Wednesday, kept in Thursday & discharged on Friday. So it’s been & will continue to be, busy busy busy.
Good news that the Frome M-X, the first Meeting run by the new team with Senior Officials Pete Bergum, Alan Mountstevens & Nick Steadman went well with >200 riders. I’m looking forward to seeing British Championship Sidecar Cross there again. Next year perhaps?
On the Trials front, the Centre Champ events begin again with Frome’s Ron Jefferies Trial at Wanstrow on Saturday week, 14th September, Regs here Frome Ron Jefferies CChamp 140914 the Kingswood Hawkesbury on the 28th September [Regs awaited] & the West Wilts Errington Cup Trials at Perrys in Bath on 12th October Regs here WWMC Errington CChamp 121014.
I’m not sure if I mentioned that youth rider Tom Culliford has gone International, but good to seea Wessex Centre Rider ‘flying our flag’ in age group World Championship events. Not good to see that Richard Jenkins may have broken another, the same one?, collar bone at the Swiss M-X GP, but Dan & Joe Millard had a better day.
