    Registering/ratifying etc

    Just a quick heads up.

    I'm away for a week or so from this Friday (25th May) riding the Highland Trail 550 so it's unlikely that I'll be responding to any emails during that time - in fact my phone will be in air-plane mode for most of the time to save battery usage. If you haven't had a confirmation email when registering or have sent in a ratification form just be patient I'll respond to you once I'm back.

    Have fun. If you see Rich and Tom then please say hello from Mr Sparkle.

    Just had a look at the tracker to see how Bob is going on and it's not looking good. Something has gone amiss. Hope he's ok.

    Things didn't go quite as planned! Short version: got food poisoning then heatstroke then mechanical problems so bailed at the fifty mile mark. Long version here: http://bobwightman.blogspot.com/2018...y-well-no.html

    There was a scratch (abandon) rate of about 40%, most were due to the heat but one rider went for a swim and cut his foot on a rock and another was attacked by a cow!

    Bump for summer hols!

    I'm away for three weeks from this Thursday (2nd August) so for those who are successful and have submitted your forms just be patient. I might check my email on my phone but I won't be able to check the forms. I'm back around the 22nd.

    Hi Bob

    Did you get my email regarding split times from Pillar to Kirk fell?

    Cheers
    Darren Fishwick, Chorley.

    I did indeed Darren. We are having an extraordinary committee meeting to determine if you should be struck from the records for such a flagrant attempt at misleading us!

    Haha cheers Bob

    On closer inspection I was glad to see the pillar-kirk fell split was wrong. The correction makes my wander on kirk fell seem not as bad.
