Friday & Saturday Easter Meet Events

West Lothian's performance of our new club song "Ye Cranks and Stays" brought the house down on the Friday Night. Kirsty was on Ukulele, and Jez's lead vocal was backed by Tink, Megan, Wena, Michael and Alex, we even managed to get the audience to join in with the chorus!

Clarion Hill Climb
I tied with Bury Clarion's Andy Horner to win the short time trail on Saturday morning and Jez won the Handicap event. All the kids rode the route too, with 9 year old Michael beating his older sisters Wena and Megan (As a 12 year old, Megan set the official junior record for the course). 7 year old Alex took part in his first race and was cheered across the line by a crowd of 30.

Saturday Evening ceilidh and buffet.
The Scottish contingent showed the sassenachs how to dance, If there was a trophy we would have won it! The evening was a chance to get to know new people and reacquaint ourselves with friends from other sections. The kids helped organise the raffle, and there was a special awards ceremony for the four youngsters who rode the hill climb.
