    Info on early members

    I'm currently getting data on early rounds that is currently paper based into the database and for two members I've got a bit of a problem.

    For Phil Betney (#57) and Neil Matthews (#58) who were successful on 18th June 1997 the sheet of paper with the times for their last leg is missing. Thus I don't know either their finishing time or their time for the Round. Phil Betney did have an Ulverston address while Neil Matthews letters have a Coniston header.

    Being such early rounds there's no consistency in how each round was reported, the paper form that was in use when I took over Membership Secretary duties in 2012 hadn't been introduced. Even then it wasn't used by everyone.

    Does anyone know either of these two? If you do then could you ask them to get in touch with me via [email protected], ta.

    Another mystery ...

    Looking at his ratification form it's completely blank! Fred obviously accepted it since he's written the membership number on it. It's likely that he did the Round with one of the people either side but which one? They have different start and finish times. It seems he was working at Ullswater Outward Bound at the time as the two either side have that as their "club". The date of their Round was 1984-08-16

    Anyone know of him?

    Bob, try the membership secretary at Helm Hill Runners - Mick was a member of Helm Hill when he completed his crossing for the Joss Naylor Lakeland Challenge, about 20 months ago.

    Also your other post:- 1997 seems a totally wrong year for #57 & #58. The first successful round that I supported was in 1986 and that chaps membership was well into the hundreds.

    Cheeers Ian,

    Typo on my part re: 1997 & 1977. Definitely the latter.

    Not yet, Ian's lead didn't turn up anything. If you can get him to drop me a line at [email protected] that'd be great.
