Title: Leicester Race Sunday 21 September.....
Post by: craig dickson on September 14, 2014, 07:20:06 PM
Hi Folks


The booking office is now open for next weekend's event at the splendid King Lear lake at Leicester.


We are getting towards the back end of our season, and everything is still to play for in terms of the results table :-)  I suspect that several classes will go to the wire in terms of final placings!


So please do book in and let's make this another cracking good event. Entries to Mark Wild please.

Hi Craig


With just 3 full days for entries to come in, can't wait for this race as last couple of Leicester event have been rained off!!


Hope the turnout is as good as the weather forecast!!

The Leicester venue and lake is always a joy with plenty of water space for the faster boats. I also like the fact that the grassy boat preparation area is right next to the lake.


We are close to the back end of the season, so I for one am much looking forward to this coming Sunday.


If you are reading this I hope to see you there for some good racing and great fun and enjoyment :-))

Hi Folks


Today's event turned out to be a cracker, thanks to all competitors that turned out and thanks to the host club who as always made us feel so welcome. Special thanks from me go to Mark Wild who has given up all of his racing opportunities this year to manage many of our events. He did a splendid job yet again :-))


Watch this space for some photos of the event and perhaps some video footage.


Cheers
Craig :-)
