I don't know if I will be able to make it fr the hockey, I hardly play
anymore but having ridden hamsterley in the past it is well worth the
trip for that alone.

Anyone who likes their muni would be well advised to go for the ride at
hamsterley.

I might make the journey up if I'm not too busy.

At the moment there is loads of space, we have lots of interest but only
2 teams have paid the money.

Would be great if SWUM could come up, we can then get our revenge.

We need people to tell us they are coming!

We have only 2 people from outside the area who have told us that want
to be in the scratch teams.

The Stockton club have 14 scratch players.  :-)

We are going to be running a little competition for the scratch teams,
for the best scratch team (except possible the top scratch team that we
will get to be comparable with the top proper teams).

So come one guys, if you are coming tell us and we can put you into
teams!

We also need to know if you are interested in the freestyle workshop. I
know that people have said they are coming to it but have not
officially informed Connie they are coming.
