Re: The great reunion

Oscar, that’s such a wonderful thing to have done. The Beacon, I’m sure, means and has meant a great deal to many people since those founder members kicked it all off.
Great stuff.

Balance paid. Not sure if the cost for long sleeve skin suit differs from the listed price of £139 for short sleeve . If someone could let me know if I owe any extra whenever's convenient.
Thanks for everyone's efforts to get this all sorted, much appreciated.

I'd love to do this but the dodgy hand isn't quite up to the rigours of cyclocross just yet.
As we move further into the summer and the evenings get longer I'm hoping to start some regular 'cross training at Highbury park on Tuesday evening.

I saw the Beacon gazebo at the Redditch 'Cross, it was deserted although I felt justified in leaving my water bottle in it during the race.
No idea who was looking after it, I'll mention it to Greg as he has lots of contact with Redditch R & P.
