Thanks to club stalwart, Chris Bolton for this gradely New Year message. Here’s hoping that sooner rather than later we will be savouring Sailash’s quirky humour in the dressing room, relishing racing once more against Dave’s handicapping, all ahead of indulging in Pat’s always excellent post-race buffet.
And to send us forth smiling into the New Year here’s a lovely photo of charismatic Jack Tempest finishing in front of his admiring public – probably taken in the 1950s.
