Hi
I have to place on record my thanks to the Wolves members who contributed to making the event meet all my expectations, starting on Friday night when members stayed back to erect tables and move furniture into storeage, to make room for the Pits. Kev,Matt,Nick and Lewis.
On Saturday in addition to the support of Bill and Rob D getting started on scrutineering,Sam hovered the longe right through and helped prepare the kitchen.
Phil for organising the Concours. Rob W for assisting with Race Control and loading the computer with 40 names.
The two framed A4 GP pictures awarded to the Concours and Race winners were organised by Paul G and Ian J, who had spent Saturday chasing down an extra frame.
When everyone had departed the clean up started.Within 2 hrs and with the support of Roy,Nick, Lewis and Phil we had the place ready for the Youth Club to use on Monday.
Without this level of member support and interest there would be no meetings.
Thank you all.
Malcolm
