Re: Club Kit Order 2019

Welcome to the club, Simon. Stuart does have some limited kit in stock, I think, so it might be worth dropping him a line via one of the channels listed in his signature above (I'd give it a few days though, as he's currently riding PBP).

I have already mooted From Clee to Heaven (Beastly version); Mini-Kidderminster Killer or just Clee Killer.
My worry with these would be that there's scope for confusion between the new route and the existing ones. I don't really have a suggestion, but I'd go for something more distinct.

You don't need to tell the league organisers that you'll help out, because if you enter the league then they'll already expect you to as it's a condition of entry that you help at your own club's round. It's then up to the organising clubs to arrange things on the night.
