Our next races will see us contesting the Dick and Zena Smith trophies at the Bury AC Track on Saturday, June 4th, starting at 1.00 p.m.
As Dave and Pat Evans are unable to attend it would be really helpful if you could let Dave know in advance if you will be there and in what capacity. Lap scorers will be needed! Roy Gunnett will be the day’s Master of Ceremonies, for which many thanks.

Somewhat wearily I have to report that I won’t make it back – all the more frustrating it being my 75th birthday on June 3rd. At the very least I would have fetched some sparkling wine, some bottles of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord and, of course, the pies! As it is we’re celebrating here on Crete by way of a concert in our garden. Find the invitation below and if by a miracle you can accept, let me know. I’d be well chuffed!
IN LOVE AND STRUGGLE: TONY’S 75th BIRTHDAY
SUNDAY, JUNE 5th IN OUR GARDEN
You are cordially invited to celebrate and/or commiserate with me on my grudging arrival at the grand old age of 75. Well over half a century ago I dreamt of the demise of capitalism, the creation of an authentically democratic society. Today that vision seems far, far away as many seem to be sleepwalking into an authoritarian dystopia.
Yet ordinary life goes on with all its personal highs and lows. Hence I will cease being a curmudgeon and look forward to a delightful early evening of jazz performed by the wondrous Maria Manousakis and the brilliant Hot Club De Grece.
On arrival at around 6ish canapes will be served, together with wine as befits our status as middle-class pensioners in exile. If we’d been in Wigan it would have been real ale and pies but you can’t have everything. The concert will kick off at 6.30 after which you will be thrown out to do as you please! No presents but, if you so wish, a bucket donation to Medical Aid for Palestinians gratefully accepted.
