How lovely it was to see everyone out of lycra! Hopefully all who attended had a good time and didn’t have too sore of a head the next day. Well done to those who raced on the Sunday, there’s no extra championship points for hangovers though!
A big BTS thanks to Lynda Hart, Mike Brennan, Ed Nunn, Chris Dollimore, John Booker, Stephanie Muzzall, Gemma Korff and Karen Dax for their assistance with the party. As well as Liam O’Loughlin for being our photographer. Through the live auction, silent auction, raffle and casino night, we were able to raise £2,855 – wowza! That’s great news and as always we’ll split that with our chosen charity Arctic One this year.
