Fri 24th Aug 2018 7:00pmOtherThornbridge Weekend

Apologies for the tardiness of adding this to the calendar. I have copied the following details (with amendments) from a previous year:

Annual club camping weekend at Thornbridge Hall for all the family, Friday evening to Sunday pm ... and in the calendar fully eighteen months 1 month in advance, thereby indicating the hyper-efficiency total inefficiency of the new regime.

Expect the usual fun and games including probably Ashford-in-the-Water fell race (finishing in-the-water) organised by Roy Small; kids fell race say afternoon; Friday night some kind of quiz/food/drunk; cake & cava in the Sat late afternoon sunshine (not guaranteed); BBQ Sat night (bring something to blacken, and an instrument for entertainment if you aspire to such things); kids & big kids cyclo-cross race; plus plenty of opportunities to cycle on the Monsal trail, run off your hangover on Longstone Edge on the Sunday morning, or just hang out on the campsite. Good quality beer, buns and sauces included. Sunday might be a cyclo cross event again for adults and Kids.

All welcome, especially new members, and kids and partners particularly welcome. Surprising though it may seem, many have come away reporting themselves very satisfied with their DP 'full immersion' experience. The facilities are remarkably sophisticated for a DP event, including 'luxury' industrial kitchen, hot showers and loads of room to run around outside and in. Costs: £10 per adult per night/day and £5 for kids (under 6 free). Organisers: Bronwen and Tim Ray .

Sat 25th Aug 2018 11:00amDPFR raceAshford in the water

The usual fun as part of the Thornbridge weekend, completed by a compulsory dip in the river - always refreshing. Open to all, not just those at the weekend. The precise start time will as usual be dictated by the bongs of the local clock, however, I'm not entirely sure if its the first or the last bong. I'm sure all will be made clear.

Graham Berry's one-off 70th birthday race was such a gem that the webmaster and calendar agreed in the pub immediately following that we cannot let Graham's 80th pass without a repeat running.  With a winning time on a fine day in December 2014 of 2hrs 15mins, and some stalwarts taking over 3 hours, the 9am start certainly needs retaining for the increasingly more mature.  As to other arrangements - all in good time, folks, all in good time.
