Message from Jim Thorneyroft -
It's the final race of the BDL Summer League tomorrow evening (Tuesday) and I've temporarily resumed TM duties until Colin hopefully rejoins us at Shipley Park for the race. We're in trophy contention in all 3 team categories, but we'll need a strong turnout. There's a few age category prizes still up for grabs too, apart from the LV45 title which has already been won in convincing fashion by Jo Grant.This race will mark the end of an era as it will be the last to be held under the sponsorship of Louis Booth of Booths Decorators and the Winter XC presentations will also be held after the race too, and we've got the ladies gold medal, combined silver and mens bronze trophies to collect plus our usual swag of individual medals.The race starts at the usual 7.30pm and its open to all club members aged 14+, remember to bring your club top. The address is Shipley Park Cricket Club, The Field, Shipley Park, DE75 7JH. If you haven't been before don't go to the park visitor Centre, that's the wrong end. The cricket club is accessed off the Heanor to Ilkeston road shortly after the turn off to the old American Adventure theme park. And a cautionary word about parking, there was major hassle last year with local residents getting their driveways blocked so please park sensibly and try to use the field at the side of the cricket pitch.
