A comment from Keith Donald #83160
I would like to thank you and your team for the outstanding event at Nuneaton a couple of weeks ago. It was so enjoyable: great venue, great racing, warm welcome and outstanding organisation.
I competed only in 1 event, but I shall do more next year.
I know how much time goes into the preparation for such events; they can be so time-consuming, but I do want to express my thanks and appreciation for the quality of the championships. Thanks so much, and well done.
Hi Tom, Have the numbers been posted or are they collect on the day?
Hi Paul, Collin Green who dealt with the entries has to my knowledge sent all the numbers out. You are definitely on the entry list. Please come along anyway, I shall be handing some numbers out to certain athletes. I will in the meantime email Collin so that he know you have not received your numbers.
See you tomorrow,
Any idea of the timetable for the T&F champs yet ?
Hi William, Sorry for delay in approving your comment, I have been on holiday. Our T&F Secretary should be sending out the information you require when he acknowledges your entry. As soon as I myself have this information I will get it on this website. I suspect it will be similar to last year. See you on the 10th.
