Verging on sub artic temperatures a large contingent of BJA members turned out to try and win a few medals. The scheduled start time was 9:30 sharp, which meant that we started at 10:00, the knock on effect that we had to cut St George down in size to a St Georgina(?), cutting down the last two distances to two dozen each.
The wind turbine was merrily turning in the slight breeze, pumping power into the National Grid, which meant that at the longer distances the wind was having a “mild” effect on the direction of the arrows.
The weather also seemed to impose a more sedentary pace to proceedings, because by lunchtime we had only just finished the first three dozen and the pangs of hunger were being felt by the Buttie Brothers, with calls for half time bacon sarnies to be brought forth with the upmost urgency, or a Maccy D’s run for Elise (other fast food establishments are available).
Rob had kindly volunteered to run the BBQ, offering burgers and sausages to suit all tastes primarily charcoal or still moving; mine was great and I’m still here on Wednesday to write this.
Thanks to tall those who turned up in the less than ideal weather. Special thanks to Shai for buying the burgers and sausages etc., Rob for cooking them and everyone who helped set up and take down, plus anyone else my failing memory has forgotten.
