  1. OAP concessions, why?

    SCB, when you were in a position to take advantage of a discount, did you refuse or take it.
  2. Ben Fund

    Like him or loathe him, Hans Anderson is a great supporter of this event. I know someone with more time on their hands than me will now delve into every Ben Fund meeting to prove me wrong, but he seems to attend more than most.
  3. Speedway ... A Way Forward

    Exactly the point I was trying to make, but you have nailed it. It is no good encouraging 18 - 25 year olds to come along and expect them to behave like us old farts. They like to have a beer or ten, bit of a sing song and a laugh. Most of the blokes who work for me are in this age group, and that just about sums out their nights out. It will take a massive mind set change for the majority of us to accept it is the way forward, but change is not always a bad thing. Unless they stand in my spot, obviously.
  4. Speedway ... A Way Forward

    However you dress it up, it is just not appealing to the younger generation. I would say the average age of most of the crowd is 50 to 65 years old, and when they became hooked there was no computer games, multiple television channels, Internet, etc. It was football, cricket and three tv channels. There is now so many things youngsters can do, most of them I have never heard of, I honestly do not know how you get them interested in going and retaining that interest. If there was big money to be made, someone like Barry Hearn would have made it the new darts. He has really turned that sport on its head, and all events sell out. I think most supporters are just glad if their team run next year, and hope to see decent racing every week..
  5. Scorpions 2018

    I do not know, that is why I put 'can get away' and not 'has got away'. Mind you, judging by this thread I am the only that did not hear a personal phone call between two people.

    He will probably think if Ged Rathbone can get away with trousering a wedge, Mr Godfrey has nothing to worry about.
  7. Why would you not be sure it would be on even in fine weather or you are just being a d#ck.
  8. If anyone is travelling from the Lincoln area, the Scampton air show is on and there are diversions on the A15. Best give yourself a bit extra time.
  9. Weather forecast not looking to good. Showers followed by heavy rain and thunderstorms around 17.00. Will summer ever start?
  10. Having been to other tracks and heard some of the drivel their presenters come out with, I will take Rob all day long. He will always congratulate and credit the away riders if they do well.
  11. I usually lose the will to live after about page 2/3 of most threads as it always degenerates into personal attacks from the same old keyboard warriors, but as I follow Scunny I have stuck with this one. How can such a simple sport on paper turn into such a confusing mess that matches Formula 1 for complex rules is beyond me. I know 99.9% of people, Lewy is the exception as I know he secretly loves all things Scunny, couldn't care whether I go again or not, but rather than being a regular I think I will be quite selective in the future.
  12. How is the Championship relegation decided?
  13. Berwick V Scunthorpe Championship 22/4/17@7-00pm

    As Fozzie4322 says, we really need to start making the EWR a fortress because on the road, they have so far exceeded my expectations. One more thing, has anyone heard from Lewy?
  14. The Bsf Massif !

    If this is a post during the season, I dread to think of some of the winter ones when folk are really bored.
  15. How can something so simple as 4 blokes racing over 4 laps be so confusing. I hope Scunny have the appeal upheld as I support them, but reading the previous posts, I don't how it will end up.
