    Colin Is it true you have planning permission for speedway around Cornhill roundabout, and will it be free entry as you cannot build a fence.

    Peter has told me many times, he does not wish to be inducted.

    From a reliable source within BSSC, Peter has never been asked so could not have turned down the offer. If you are to make a statement, please get your facts right first please

    That was a logo copyright, I think lodged by Phil Nrwton. I was referring to a copyright on a name. BERWICK BANDITS SUPPORTERS CLUB

    It does appear to me, the more a club mis-manages it's affairs, and the BSPA negate their responsibility by not sorting out the many problems in speedway. Of course the two are the same, as the promoter is one part of the other. The more they ask of a declining fan base financially, to the degree where it reaches terminal decline.

    Surely, A supporters club run by supporters, is a supporters club, of which the supporters decide on what any funds are spent on. A supporters club run by the club, is a funding stream run by the club for it's own benefit, and should not be called a supporters club, as it is without the control of the supporters. The way to support a club is to pay through the turnstiles. The clubs responsibility is to provide adequate entertainment to achieve that.

    It is sad news, I loved The Comics coming to Berwick. On the question of investment, no businessman or woman would knowingly invest in a bad investment and speedway is a bad investment. INVESTMENT is the wrong heading, CHARITABLE DONATION would be more apt

    It shows the seriousness in the decline of speedway in the UK in general. The powers that be, have hindered the product rather than improved it, again this year they have tinkered around the edges, rather than taking " the bull by the horns" and drastically changing the product. Sarah I admire your unstinting support for your team, but fans will no longer blindly follow their local team for the sake of it. Speedway is a relatively ex;pensive sport especially for a family, more so in a cash strapped area in which Berwick Bandits rely on, Berwick & The Borders. So, unless the product is massively improved I fear the worst for speedway in general, and more so for a club that is cash strapped. AS you know, for the first time in over 20 years I missed a lot of meetings last season, in large very much to do with the level of entertainment on track, which apart from just a few meetings was poor. The Promotion must do a lot better than 2018 as I fear the demise will be even greater. Nobody wants to lose speedway in Berwick, but unless the product drastically improves, I fear for it's demise.

    I follow what you say, but there is no automatic entitlement, it is down to each club to what they allow. All of the areas you mention, all should be aware of the financial pressures on the clubs, and the more these groups abuse their position, the greater to damage is done to the individual clubs. As said at the end of the day it is up to the management of each club to manage the club in a way that does not damage the financial position of each club.
