Stanbury Splash - the start of 2016 Carshare League. results
Good to welcome visitors to the many and varied delights of Penistone Hill. The course was altered to the shorter Stoop course, which provided the expected pleasures of ice, snow, sinking bogs and holes to fall in. Results coming in due course. Could Jim please inform Rose not to chortle when she comes hurtling past me next time?
Next race is High Cup Nick, 27th Feb, and if you've not done that area, above Dufton, it can't be recommended highly enough. The Nick is an impostor for Kinder Downfall, but still highly impressive. Then it's the Pennine Way to head for the finish. A right good preparation for Black Combe.
Carshare might be looking for an A1 meeting, somewhere.
Ireland - British Championships. Saturday 9th April.
Carshare is secretly plotting an assault on the Carshare League, and has booked flights for Ireland - from Leeds/Bradford. Please let me know if you book flights, etc, and I can sort out a list of who is doing what. Any ideas on booking accommodation? We've booked B/B.
Details A completely excellent course, from Donard Park in Newcastle. Muchly the long established Donard-Commedagh course, which has often been Championship, but now with a variation around the back of Commedagh. For once, no worry about entries, needed before late March, with no limit.
And being part of the Carshare League, what more incentive could there be to be joining in the excitement. A compass can sometimes help out.
