From John Newlove:

Hi everyone,

Looks like the Vale of York is short of marshals, I didn’t have a great response from our club, is anyone else available to help please.

Can you please circulate a further email please.

I wrote earlier about the Vale of York Stages. We are still trying to recruit both marshals and radio crews. We are looking a bit thin on the ground at the moment, September looks very busy already and I understand that some may be reluctant to come out given recent events and indeed some of you may have decided that this is an opportune time to reconsider the silliness of early starts to stand in the middle of a draughty airfield.

The restrictions we feared for the event have, so far, not materialised and we will not be requiring passes, addresses and all that stuff but we will still look to do signing on remotely before the event to save us all time.

There will be a marshals draw and we will have catering on site to make life a little more normal.

Please forgive me if you have already replied to me, if not I look forward to hearing from you soon.
