ROUND 6 NOW AT LOCHGILPHEAD ON 5TH AUGUST 2018 TELL YER MATES
FRESH OFF THE PRESS ,VENUE AND DATE CHANGE .NO FAKE NEWS HERE
Just a quick update on the latest weather scandal to hit these shores. We have never had to suffer this dry hot climate in this country since records began and it is getting a lot of people annoyed and flustered as they cannot get out for a wee shot on their motocross bikes.Well as you may all know by now we had to cancel round 6 on the instruction of your chairman ,Rick Caldwell and your safety officer Gary White after a track inspection on Monday night the 23rd July .Personaly i would not pass comment on their judgement but a few members seem to think all things can be made good with a few tweeks here and there ,well it does not work like that ,a serious decision was made and it looks to have been the correct one as we have no rain and i think if we do get rain it will be wet rain as all we have had recently is talk of rain that turns out just to be dry and hot .This heat is giving me demoantia. Anyway the top team (ME) went into overdrive and reorganised the event to be run a week later at Achnashelloch Farm Moto Track Lochgilphead ,the home of the Campbell family who gratefully gave us the use of their damp track. We could not fit round 6 in anytime or anywhere else due to double bookings etc. although i got pelters from lady Di as she is running an event 176 miles away at Duns on that date and a fruitless conversation where i offered to cancel our event if she could name 10 riders that do both championships,the Twinshock and The Borders ,guess what nadir ,go on then give me 8 i said ,again silence what that heck give me 7 ,back came a reply with 7 names 3 of which are not even Twinshock members so i rest my case with dignity .I have never begged,pleaded or even asked any other club to move a date for us and never will i think it is a lack of confidence in what you do that breeds a bit of fear of a low entry .My opinion is if riders want to race they will, no matter what the organisers do or say to attract them So Di i hope you have a good meeting and hope to get a big cuddle soon as i respect you as an organiser and a model.
ROUND 6 NOW AT LOCHGILPHEAD ON THE 5TH AUGUST 2018. Entries will carry from Drumclog .If you want to enter just send in Drumclog round 6 form .
