- Abingdon Sprint – Officials Meeting and Training 26th Feb
SCMC and Craven are running the Abingdon Long Course Sprint on the 9th April. On Sunday 26th Feb, the organising team met to run through the plan, roles and responsibilities as well as to go through some scenario training. One of the key elements of this event is that each role has a deputy or trainee. Sunday helped to train those as they learn the roles. Thanks goes to everyone for turning out on a Sunday and to Barry for organising 16 different scenarios covering everything from drivers turning up without licences to what to do when a car leaves the track.
- Social – 28th Feb Down the pub with Dale
12 of us made it to the ‘Georgen Evelyn’ on Tuesday 28th. It turns out that with three beers brewed within a mile of the pub, and a range of 8 more on tap, the range was quite outstanding. Dale managed to cart the simulator down to the pub, and laps of Brands Hatch were tried by Barry, Dale, Nigel and Jon. It wasn’t until we tried ‘Dirt Rally’ that Ian Brooks showed us how it was done, managing 5th on the Monte Carlo rally in a BMW E30 M3. Many thanks to all those that carried parts of the simulator; seat, computer screens, speakers, amplifer etc etc back to Dales house.
- Social – Down-the-pub-with Dale Huxford. 28th February 2017
The Ditton, renamed now as the George Evelyn has just re-opened and has given us the new restaurant area to ourselves for Tuesday 28th. We can therefore fit the new, three-screen simulator in and get people and beer in the same room. Dale will be there from about 7pm, setting up the kit and sampling the new range of beers on offer. The food is really good too. (Dale and the family just had to sit-in and sample some 🙂 Although the full a-la-carte menu isn’t available until the end of the week, the bar snacks are, well, MMmm….
It’s Surrey’s first gluten-free pub, with a range of both the more usual and gluten free foods and drinks. See https://twitter.com/thegeorgeevelyn?lang=en
