  1. Berwick vs Newcastle 31/03/18 1st Leg TTT

    Fair enough, as a contest it was well over at the interval at 20-40. Although Berwick did 'win' the last five heats 21-9! But define 'entertainment'. Do you mean the team losing, or more than that?
  2. Berwick v Glasgow 14/4

    Comeback anytime, Bruno! Bring your homeless friends, but never give up hoping for your new track.

    Prices are regular Berwick costs: £15, £11 & all kids free.
  4. Berwick v Glasgow 14/4

    Valid points. Contact addresses are in programme - tell the promotion!
  5. British Under 21

    Well, the semi-final is at Perry Barr and the Final is at Berwick. Get over it. If these venues and dates don't suit everyone, then that's unfortunate but hardly unexpected. Last year, the Final was at Poole, which was hardly an easy trip for speedway supporters in Glasgow or Edinburgh. Fair enough to move meetings around, surely?

    U-21 Final last year (at Poole) was £15 for adults, and kids up to sixteen were variously charged £4 or £7. Semi-finals last year were £10 across the board. Berwick are maintaining their "Kids Go Free" policy, which is a fair gesture.

    I was shown the Facebook banner this morning, advertising next four matches -- which include U-21 Final -- as £15, £11 and "Kids Go Free".

    Bandits' website informs us the snowed-off TTT match against Newcastle will now be raced on Saturday, April 21st.

    Full credit to the club's reputation as 'safe hands' for a big event.
  10. Glasgow 2018

    That's confirmed, Stewart in for Middlo on Monday night. Do we sniff a Gordon Pairman influence?
  11. Glasgow have listed Bomber at No 5 and captain on Saturday.
  12. Berwick vs Newcastle 31/03/18 1st Leg TTT

    That's correct. First meeting of 2017 under the new promotion, but celebrating the previous fifty seasons. On March 18th, won by Claus Vissing. The Newcastle match was the following week, March 25th.
  13. Berwick vs Newcastle 31/03/18 1st Leg TTT

    It was the opening meeting of 2016 (against Redcar) that was saved -- absolutely -- by covers, but left vehicles stranded in car-park. The same match had been rained off the week before about 6.15 without turnstiles being opened, and people might have been stranded that night as well. The really big operation was after the first FIM meeting in 2012, when at least twenty vehicles were bogged down, perhaps because it was a huge crowd and people unfamiliar with the car-park had ventured into parts they shouldn't oughter have!

    An uncharacteristically uncharitable post, Steve. In all probability the covers WOULD have worked tonight, if there is no more precipitation. But car-park is sodden and the tractors would still have been pulling cars out the mud at midnight. The temperature this evening won't get above 2C and there can be no pleasure in standing or sitting in that, with every possibility of snow or sleet coming in, and a bitter nor'easterly wind whipping around. We all want to have speedway on, but the actual track isn't the only concern for a promotion to bear in mind. And as has been said, if you put covers down nine times and save eight of the meetings at around £2K a time - you're doing it right!
