It was great to see so many of you at the Scrambles but unfortunately the weather was against us.
I have re scheduled the Memorial Scrambles for 14-15th June.
I hope you will be able to make it and if you could have a word with the powers that be and arrange for some good weather, I would be grateful.

Just in case anyone is planning on trying to find accommodation for this weekend, be advised that it is the MG weekend at Silverstone. Apparently the Yew Tree and Two Hoots have both been booked up since before Christmas.

Don't forget its the Scrambles this weekend and hopefully the weather will be on our side this time.
Please all be there by 9am at the very latest as time is tight as its a busy weekend as well. I would like to do the team draw by 9.15am, so the comp can start at 10am.
There is a BBQ on Sat night.
This is a 2 day comp, and the 1st load on Sunday will be going at 9am.
See you Sat :o)
