CRABWOOD NEWSLETTER CHRISTMAS 2021

Hi Crabwood. It’s been a while since the last newsletter. I don’t think much has happened! Apart from being confined to barracks. Speaking for myself I had a few weeks away from work...wonderful. Plenty of time to spend hours out on my bike on lovely empty roads, except for the suicidal walkers that were now out of their cars still thought they owned the roads. I also caught up on loads of decorating and gardening. Unfortunately, things are back to normal, and the roads are full of lunatics again. And even worse I am back working. So, I hope all of you who are still working enjoyed your time off.

Welcome to new member Colin Witt, plus new 2nd claim members Martin Napier and Martin Balk.

On the racing front there hasn’t really been much at all.  A few time trials.  Hopefully things will be back to normal next year.

                                                                           EVENTS

The club events will be back next year, and as usual we will need some volunteers for marshalling, etc. Dates to follow in the next newsletter.  The return of the Mince pie run 19th December. Meet at Eling at 10.00 for those daft enough to cycle. For the sensible people meet 12.00 at The New Forest wildlife park, Deerleap lane, Longdown.

Also returning is the Geoff Shergold Memorial cyclo-cross at the Sports centre 16th January.  Volunteers please. Contact Kerie  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  07850 172929 if you can help with setting up the course on Saturday 15th,  or in any way on Sunday 16th, even a couple of hours’ marshalling would be welcomed.

 

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas. Alan.

 

DECEMBER 2019 XMAS NEWSLETTER.

 

 

Hello Crabwood members, it’s been a while since my last newsletter, a few IT issues and apathy on my part have led to a bit of a delay.

 

NEWS.

 

The club and I would like to wish Pete Betteridge a speedy recovery from his recent heart surgery.

 

On a sadder note Roger Bacon president of New Forest cc recently passed away, the club and I would like to send our condolences to Roger's family, friends and clubmates.

 

MINCE PIE RUN.

 

It’s time for that annual cold, wet a windy ride around The Forest. Yes, it’s the Mince pie run. So, clear your diaries for 22nd Dec. Meet at Ealing at 10.00 for those daft enough to cycle, and the sensible people in cars meet at 12.00 at the New Forest wildlife Park Deerleap Lane, Colbury.
