Re: Mike Jones Rally Stickers 1981 and 1979

Dave,
I have a 1980 (original cardboard) year one that has sat in a drawer for 37 years so probably won't be missed.
PM me your address and I will put it in the post to you.
I also have a set of 35mm slides of the event including a dapper young gent with a cardboard TV camera!

Re: 25th June 2016 - Kayakers needed for SwimRun event.

Chloe,
Just to let you know that the Conwy Ascent race and tour is on the 25th Jun and quite a few local paddlers may be doing that.
Hopefully there won't be an overlap and you manage to get plenty of cover but I thought I ought to let you know.
