    Whatever happened to the 'excess travelling" problem.

    The green button was to facilitate betting in the Far East, along with transponders on the bikes, which showed a virtual race in the betting shops. I was at the presentations in London in the early 00's, but the idea didn't go forward. We were not working it through SKY, but a separate specialist company.

    Really. Look at some things that were published in the Speedway Star. Golden Heats, more that two teams per meeting, etc. Half the things that were said in those articles were not even true, when doing comparisons. Promoters don't usually need to be told by others how to lose money with gamble's. Some like Glasgow already hold the secret.

    Got to also be remembered, that Glasgow own their stadium and the outlets in it, so no 'rent ' as such, and an extra money stream, and possible tax exemption if they put it through their business. Ironic that the have poured money into riders who other clubs were likely to sign, only to call off the signing cos Glasgow has found the magic money tree. They are reaping what THEY have sown.

    Seeing some of the 'solutions' suggested on here, would anybody run the risks of trying most of them.

    The SCB is not invited to the AGM as it is for the BSPA to decide the future formats of speedway, so why should you be looking for anything on the SCB twitter. Every year a press statement is prepared as they leave the AGM for the Present Officer to write up, and issue it usually the morning afterwards. The main points are included and smaller items immerse in the period afterwards possibly having been presented to the SCB for scrutiny and comments. It's only in people's twisted minds that it's a mushroom situation, but if you feel neglected so be it. Many times something is agreed but on reflection, when other decisions are later made, the original decision needs to be amended. If they did what you expect, you and others would be on their backs saying something like "why didn't they wait till the end and publish the findings in full' and not very professional. Can't win really, hence the reason trying to get it right is more important than feeding the crocodiles looking in and ready to attack.

    It was introduced in 97, that was my first year as Promoter.
  13. I did notice you were on it quite a lot.
  14. This should be a header on some threads, for the number of times it has to be explained at the beginning and end of every season.
