    Probably a meeting with the Rugby Club to see how they can extend the centre green to accomodate the Reds Football team !

    I havent visited rough park for several years. There are two reasons...1. The track can be downright dangerous at times (just look at how many riders get injured there). 2. A section of the so called home "fans" are a disgrace to their club..they are compared to animals, due to their antagonistic attitude to visiting supporters, with them LAUGHING as a visiting rider is taken away by ambulance, swearing and making threats to away supporters etc etc. I am sorry if this offends genuine Diamonds fans, but it is a fact and I and my fellow Comets supporters have had experience of this quite often ! So you can understand why I am reluctant to visit !

    Thats the whole point Steve....the clubs past experience is that foreign riders WILL NOT SIGN for a club these days, unless there is a big enough incentive to do so ! Plus, by the time the Comets management had received answers from the riders they wanted to sign, all decent alternative British Based riders would already have been snapped up by other clubs, leaving little quality to pick from to set up our team !

    Geoff The situation that the club has been faced with for the last few seasons is this... Because of the "remoteness" of us as a town, and our distance from any major airport with decent flight destinations, then riders who do not live all year round in the UK, will not ride for us unless a van is provided ! It is too costly for them to purchase a van in March, and sell it in October ! If the club didnt offer them a van as an incentive to ride here, then they would simply choose a club that is nearer to an airport. That is the bottom line on it mate !

    My fear is that even if they DO come to the tapes in 2020, we will already have lost even more people through the turnstiles.

    What Planet do you live on Jenga ? The words "Reward" and "BSPA" arent in the same dictionary ! Let alone "Cash Incentive" !! Cant say too much, but lets put it this way..to put into context what "rewards" they got as a club...shall we say that its "highly possible" that not all of the presentations to riders or club were paid for by the BSPA ! (Allegedly) You can make your own deductions from that.

    A significant reason that the Comets cannot run this year, is just that...the sheer volume of meetings they were forced to fit in, within such a short space of time ! In other words, they were literally "victims of their own success" !! Whilst attendances were up on normal for a lot of those meetings, it STILL wasnt enough to pay off debts unfortunately.
  12. You could always swap it for Whitley Bay ?
