ooooooh what a night last night, where to start!
Another fantastic race hosted by HRC without a glitch – Sian Marie, and her trusty right hand lady Karen can be thanked for that – not forgetting the many people that step into help with all the other parts from marshaling , time keeping, ticket distribution, water, car parking, there are so many bits, but many hands truly do make light work, thank you all.
I am sure there will be many PB’s – my favorite I think though will be the one below🙂 But I think Michael Gilbert’s result last night needs a mention in dispatches, a HRC club first, one of the boys in the top three – 2nd to be precise – well done Michael!
But then we had a party, a party that went way beyond our expectations, for this we have a few to thank. It is true that I might have said to the committee “shall we give it a go then” but the people that really made it happen…
Karen – The coyote on the bar organization and her side kicks Kevin and Andrew, the mercy mission for more beer once my modest estimates ran out! But also organizing the band, and village communications.
Martin, his mate John and Shirley for the BBQ, and Katherine for her mercy mission for more food, once my modest estimate ran out – I did say you all blew our expectations!
Dr Zac (AKA Mark) for turning up into a field with his crew to play for free!
Zoe – making us legal with the license application.
Hayley and Co. for providing cake (urm Cake!)- and there is a rumor that last night was so popular that HRC might have accidentally made a profit – if we do Hayley, its going into your pot to top up the £175 you made last night for your charity fund raising for the hospice!
and finally Maisie the horse (who’s Paddock we commandeered) – for escaping at the start and providing some entertainment! – but more seriously the Ford’s who’s land we were allowed to use.
Finally thank you for all coming – C&C, CTC, ER, SS, NJ, HRC – all there having a beer with mates in a field!
