    What are they doing now?

    If you have a pussy they are most welcome.

    I witnessed Alan's accident in 1978 at Hyde Road and all I can say is that thankfully, the way fallen riders are now dealt with means that they are considerably less likely to suffer such life-changing injuries. I spoke to Alan a couple of times in the pits when he visited the Dog Bowl and whilst not the easiest person to talk to, his courage was immense. If you live anywhere near Warrington, this is the place for your next dog's holiday http://daresburyboarding.co.uk/

    Joe actually runs Daresbury Boarding Kennels and looks after my dogs when I am away. I was at his place a couple of week ago and he was telling me that he had attended Alan Wilkinson's funeral and there weren't many there. Joe is a top guy.

    Probably, reaching for his hymn sheet even as we speak. Perhaps a few verses of All Things Bright and Beautiful would go down well. All together now.....

    Well, some clubs' websites may be terrible but I would have thought that the website run by the head honchos of British Speedway might be good enough to post some interesting information rather than expecting people to have to go to a commercial site to get the information. Totally useless.

    Thank you, RS50. Bloody hell. Is the whole world these days run by making utterances on Farcebook and Twatter? Some of us do not use these companies so we have to discover things by scratching round and begging for information. Why have a completely decent, easily accessible web site if you choose not to use it for the purpose for which it was intended. I do not wish to be client of either of these companies, so why do organizations assume that you should be? :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Have they? I've had a look on the BSPA website and I can't see anything.

    Newbie Here!

    iris123, you have pointed out that my obsessive behaviour concerns you. I apologize for causing you this concern and I will take steps to modify my behaviour. The obsessive bit is apparently tied in with my PTSD. The medication helps but not much. See what happened there - you pointed out something that you were not happy with, I accepted your criticism and I will do my best not to trouble you again. Do you think that this is good way to deal with life's irritations? I believe you to be a decent person and I appreciate your open reply. I do not believe that there is any dispute between the two of us. Perhaps others looking in might consider that now is an appropriate time to consider the effects of their actions and act accordingly. So if something irritates them such as a member's posting style, they might politely mention it to them and ask them if they have considered another modus operandi. None of us are perfect and life is hard enough without falling out with supposedly like-minded people. There are plenty of other people to fall out with in the big, bad world. Many people, including myself get tremendous pleasure from the banter and waffle that goes on here and I would like to continue to do so. I feel confident that the air might have been cleared a little here and we can all try and rub along as best we can. Again, iris123, thank you for your considered reply and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the matter. Namaste.

    Perhaps an educated guess? Seems a strange guess to just pluck out of thin air, methinks. :rofl:

    Is that right? Thanks for that, TurnTwo. I can't imagine that Lee Dicken is going to Birmingham, no offence, Lee! So perhaps the old race suit will be appearing on Fleabay any day now. But then again........................................

    I hear what you are saying. I noticed that Bradley Andrews, who is joining Kent at reserve has the luxury of a full time mechanic. Perhaps the Dicken family are suitably affluent and can employ a hired hand? But then again, perhaps not.

    Newbie Here!

    I notice that you have revised your original posting, iris123 to now tell us that a user has had at least 7 warnings and is probably sitting out another ban. You are highly informative about this matter, thank you. Where did you find the information about the warnings that a member has received and the fact that the member may have been banned? I have searched high and low, yet I cannot seem to put my finger on it. Awaiting your guidance. EI Addio is looking in. What are your thoughts, friend?

    Don't remember saying that I'd got any imagination. So if all these activities are such great money spinners, have they been tried before and how did it go?

    I am hoping to see Lee Dicken back at Buxton this year. I believe his wisdom could be useful for the less experienced riders and perhaps he might adopt something of a Tony Atkin role and provide some sort of a buffer zone between Friend Pipe's aspirations and the daylight of reality. Hopefully, his New Year diet plan is holding out! Not sure that Kean Dicken will be returning to the hills as he may develop more quickly when he leaves the safety of the paternal nest and tries to plough his own furrow. I feel sure that future team announcements will be coming soon. And of course, there is always a chance that a rider who has previously done some laps round the magnificent Buxton track might think that now would be a good time to make a return? After all, that lovely crisp Derbyshire air is the equivalent of £5 a point at least!
