Midweek league - race 4 - Stevenage

Hello everybody,

Here is the information from our very own race director for the final competitive race of this year's midweek league! I think there seem to be plenty of people signed up to Marshall, but I'm sure the race committee would be very grateful for help setting up and packing away.

Looking forward to seeing you all there to keep us up in division one for next season!

Hi Ellie

We have a new recruit for the ladies team.

Rhia Botha will be / has joined the club today and would like to race on Wednesday at Stevenage.

Would you be able to allocate a race number for her to collect on Wednesday evening pre race ?

Kit secretaries : not sure if you’ve seen my WhatsApp on our group ? Any possibility of being down a ladies vest.

Many thanks
