    Can't be Seemond. He sold all his gardening gear years ago.

    I think the turf at Cardiff is in trays that can be slid out of the stadium. Don't think you can do that at Wembly and, of course, Cardiff has a roof.

    Comebacks?

    Did you mean Lemon Sole? Got to keep this fishy tail going.

    BSPL AGM

    One new initiative that I have never heard mentioned by the BSPA is the appointment of a Press and Publicity Officer. Perhaps now would be a good time!

    Perhaps you can explain then, why the promoters said, in last weeks press release, that the fixtures for the top two leagues would be published this week? Surely they must have known there might be problems with rider availability! Perhaps it's another case of treating fans like mushrooms. Keep them in the dark and feed them manure!

    Leicester Lions 2020

    I would be pleased to see Connor back. I have spent many happy hours over the lockdown watching the videos of the 2019 title winning season and he was one of the reasona why it went so well. From the Leicester web site recently it looks as if the other 6 riders will be as planned. Not sure abour Bridger - didn't he sign for the Lions once put then only rode once or something like that before he packed it in again!

    Thats about £2,000 according to my reckoning. Will the promotor foot a rider's bill I wonder!

    Leicester Lions 2020

    7 man teams then for 2021 as SD has previously announced that the other 6 signed for 2020 will ride in 2021. Not sure what the effect of flight restrictions to and from Oz will be. Oz Govt have said some restrictions are likely to be in place until end of 2021.

    Leicester have announced that they have someone lined up to replace Ellis Perks. They can't say who until the paperwork is complete. They had previously announced that the other 6 signed up for 2020 would be back for 2021 . So 7 man teams then.

    If Plymouth join the championship they could take over Somerset's team or is that too simple?

    BSPL AGM

    I suspect that its Plymouth who want to join the Championship and that they will take on the fixtures that had probably been allocated to Somerset. This would make sense as its as difficult to get to Plymouth as Somerset on some days of the week. I have edited this as I realise I have used the word sense! Sorry!

    Poole are in the Championship not the Premiership.
  18. We also had a sun break! Just like at home then! Was impressed with the way the kids were involved. Even those on the balance bikes were giving it a good go.

    The maths are now simpler. The Govt want to vaccinate everyone over 50. That's about 26 million people. The Govt reckon they can vaccinate 2 million a week. That's 13 weeks for the first dose and 12 weeks for the second which takes us up to the end of June to finish the over 50s. To do this and keep the programme rolling would mean they would have to start vaccinating 4 million a week from week 13 onwards. This all depends on getting enough doses and the people to give them. So by Easter only 26 million people 50 and over will have received one dose - if we are lucky!

    I hope that there will be a plan B and a plan C as well as a plan A! I can't see that there will be much of an improvement in the situation before the end of March at the earliest. The population if about 67 million. If we say that 50 million need vaccinating with 2 doses that's 100 million shots. The vaccine is not totally effective until after the 2nd jab. If there are 12 weeks between jabs that takes us up to the end of March. In the first month 1 million have had one dose. If they speed up to 1 million a day that's 50 days to give everyone one dose. Those getting them on the 50th day will then have to wait 12 weeks or 84 days to get their second dose. I'm making my own head hurt here but I hope you get my drift. No way is the current vaccination rate going to make much difference before Easter when we hear the season is due to start.

    I was there. My ticket for the 1966 final cost me 10/6 or 52.5 pence in today's money. But to get a ticket for the final I had to buy a set that included group matches, a quarter final, a semi final and the third/fourth place play off!

    The sun will continue to set at Beaumont Park where its always set - over the present third and fourth bends. Having the starting gate on what is now the back straight will not solve anything apart from the sun being in the riders eyes entering the first bend. The only way the sun could set behind the stand would be if you rotated the whole track 90 degrees clockwise and that would be a very expensive way to solve a problem that only happens if the sun is out in the mid summer months.

    How does that sort it? Don't you just shift the problem to bend 1 which is even more dangerous?
