BBQ Stakes Christmas Relays 8th December 2010
These were held as scheduled despite the attempted intervention of the weather goddess, as Trevor Hughes, a past handicapper would have said.
Adrian Plunkett, was his usual self, as the cuurrent guru and organiser of this event, and general organiser of the BBQ Stakes event. This was despite a bad fall from a ladder, while pruning the last branches on a fruit tree a few days ago,
Brian Crowe, who helps at most of the weekly runs, was in charge of the BBQ, and to his credit, was spot on with his catering which also covered some catering for vegetarians. Drinks were also catered, I think probably by Steve Smith, but there were only a few left over, this included soft drinks and varieties of alcoholic drinks.
An international flavour was in place at this event due to Roland Sherwood and Friend, and due to Helena and Rene, both introduced by Rad, they being brother and sister, the brother Rene staying with Rad for a few weeks on holiday at this time of year.
Winners of the relay event were Laura Toyne and Tony Sergi, both regular runners, and Terry Levings won the point acore for the year. Matthew Murphy 2 nd and Raymond Chao 3 rd in the pointscore for the year. Some runners were given a pair of socks, Helen Larmour and Caroline Campbell being lucky recipients.
Terry Levings has already circulated results, and if you want a copy, please ask me or Terry. (By e-mail if you wish).
And I apologise for not mentioning the assistance of Sonja McKenna with the cooking and the results recording.
