    Summer on the Fells

    Note the absence of question marks!! Let's do dis like Bhuddists.

    Just checked with the race website and Duddon Valley Fell Race is on Saturday 5th June 2010 (http://www.duddonvalleyfellrace.org.uk/).

    Keeping the same format as XOTF (no imagination you see, but if it ain't broke...) we'll have a run, curry, and finish off in the Loft.

    For the list, let us know what you're in for:

    - Run (specify Duddon or Social)
    - Curry
    - Club

    For the Socialists, the XOTF timings seemed to work, so for now we'll say 10.30 outside Moot Hall. I'll work on a nice route c10mi and confrm time/location of meet.

    For the Racists, just mke your own way back to Keswick after you've won fame and glory, scrub up 'n' grub up, and meet the rest of us in t'pub before the curry and Loft.

    Al, you're officially PA on this one, so culd you keep the list up to date? Oh, and I'll have a coffee while you're at it.

    P.S. Yet to speak to BH about this... Better be very good.

    Miss Fowler, further to my earlier memo, I think we'll need to add a ditherer section.

    Al, I do insist that we are categorised correctly as either Racists or Socialists. And for this one I will be a Socialist. Being the organiser I can hardly leave everyone finding their own way now, can I?

    Maybe we should hit Keswick's Chinatown and build a bridge between the two communities?
