Hi Heather & Ewan,

We are expecting to be there - if not just to witness the new 'coupling' of Kev and Rhi!! http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_biggrin.gif

We're already taking bets for who will fall off first, Kev, Me or one of two swedish boys.



Take your pick! http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_razz.gif

Hi all....a rare post from me!



So 20+ people already booked for the Karting (equal numbers of SW Branch members and allcomers). Competitors including some of the HCGB British, European and World Champions.....so just a bit competitive!!!!!!!! Must be 16 (age) or 15 and 364 days if you are Rhian!



Still places left, just let me know to book you in....or we will start without you!

Kevin Eastwood - n/a
13-Jan-09, 07:22 PM
As she is only 15 and 364days does this mean no engine for Rhi only the peddle type?



Must be a video for youtube http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_twisted.gif

Directions for SW Karting!



The Riverside pub is at the bottom of Cheddar Gorge...can't miss it and if you do, you will find yourself in the Gorge which is fairly obvious. Car park for the pub is free, the car park next to it is pay and display!



The Karting is about a mile outside Cheddar at Winchester Farm (on the right) if you head from Cheddar towards Wells. Lifts available from the Riverside if you speak to me nicely!



Cox's Mill is a large orange building (a marshal magnet!) right in the middle of the Gorge. You really can't miss this one unless you have your eyes shut!!!



See you all there...remember competitors Karting is like Hovercraft racing a NON CONTACT sport!!!!

Heather, you can't possibly expect them to resist the temptation to "assist" each other in leaving the track http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_biggrin.gif



Hope you all have a great time, and Happy Birthday to Kev and Rhian. I'm very jealous and wish I could be there! http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_sad.gif

On a similar note, will you be waiting for the green light? or going on red?

Brilliant karting event, a tad competitive from time to time!! It was like a whole weekend's racing condensed into 3 hours!



Thank you to Heather and Ewan (and anyone else) for organising the event, well worth the trip!



The party was great too, good company, good food, lots of stories and laughs, although everyone did seem a bit dotty by the end of the night! http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_wink.gif



Thanks to PC Wayne, Heather and John for helping sort my car, I am now contemplating new materials for my next hovercraft having disovered black bags and duct tape can withstand speeds of, um, well, lots of mph!!



Great event, thanks to all involved!

I'll tell you one thing....it was worse than Michele and the dodgems!!



And I'm still not sure how Mr Lewendon ended up getting any cake..... http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_mad.gif



But yeah, amazing afternoon, deffinately worth doing again!



And I'll learn to drive before next time!!



Thank you to all those who stayed on for the party, for the birthday presents and for an amazing birthday weekend http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif
