Any news on NBJ and his recuperation from his appendix operation ? 

If you read Kevin’s blog ,he is not sure whether he had an Op.Thats my reading of it.Whether he is riding or not we will have to wait and see.

To watch what probably at that time of the season would be meaningless meetings as IMO Berwick, Edinburgh, Scunthorpe won't be involved with the playoffs. 

So when do you suggest they fit the fixtures in, given there is only one spare Saturday before September? Run a double header (financial nightmare and the big risk of the second match only going ten heats) or a midweek match (guaranteed lower crowd)?

Does not matter if they keep watching weather forecasts we might still be trying to fit meetings in October

Missed 3/4 perfectly fine Saturday nights in the past 2 months with no racing

Apart from last Saturday (when Edinburgh were at Eastbourne, so they couldn't come anyway and it clashed with a gp and you know fans love to use that as an excuse to stay in the house), both postponements were after those "free weeks". Last Saturday Leon was in Poland, NBJ was ill, Gary Flint was probably in Poland as well with Leon? so there's probably two guests and a new team manager you would be looking at. Cue more moaning about the use of guests in speedway.

And risk losing the money they did against Edinburgh? A fast way to go out of business. Like it or not, this is the way speedway will be run now.

Out of those 3-4 weeks, one we were away to Eastbourne, one was the Saturday May Bank Holiday, when it rained all Saturday night and one clashed with the GP qualifier at Glasgow (would that have affected the attendance, given that folk often stay away to watch the GP's on the TV?).

That's the point, if he did, we might have a well prepared track, as it was when he did ride for us

He cost Berwick a fortune

Do you think he was worth it?
