Riponian Rally – 10 February 2019

From our Chief Marshal:

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas, whilst I have a minute I need to start planning for our stage on the Riponian Rally on Sunday 10th February.

I don’t have any timings as such yet but looks like the stage is running twice but one after the other. We are stages 4 & 5 so I anticipate not a too early start.

Thank you for everyone who has volunteered so far, I seem to be doing OK for radios, but need either a stop line crew or a flying finish crew, as well as lots of in-stage marshals.

Best wishes for the New Year and thanks for everyone’s help in 2018.
