    I think ShyTalk is on about the Sunday start times as he mentioned this in an earlier post.

    Have you been to the Crucible? It can be very chilly with the air conditioning used.

    That's because Selby was playing. Just imagine a match between Selby & Peter Ebdon!

    But you only see part of the track unless you are looking at the big screens which is the tv footage which also tells the story that if you are watching the big screens, you might as well be at home unless you like the atmosphere.

    Just thought Allen might join him again.

    Isn't this a condition for GI Ltd to sort out which is always overlooked. I have read that they are supposed to make the site safe or find another suitable venue & replace to a certain standard before a sports team leaves its home. GI Ltd seem to get away with murder as building work always is evident before any of the prior mentioned is sorted & the councils should block this. Torquay FC is always mentioned as an example of GI Ltd's work (or lack of it).

    If the speedway is unaffected next year, could there be a possibility of outside caterers(burger vans) being brought in to subsidise the club & if the clubhouse is used then the new owners receive that revenue.

    Rob has a pay scale to his riders & does not break it. If riders want more money then they should find it through personal sponsorship.He signs riders that want to ride for Scunthorpe. Sadly, I thought we had a good top 4 that could have scored 34-44 & bottom 3 about 12-18 around the EWR & possibly sneaked a few points away. Now, home meetings will be tight with no wins away but we will, hopefully, see decent speedway at most meetings.

    I got 7 laughs on this one Report post Posted April 1 Rob Godfrey has had to use his high status figure head to finally find a rider to replace Jake Allen although, it has restrictions in place. The said rider is J Garrity which will not go down with some on here, but it is with the proviso that he travels from his "home", tagged & with a guard in a standard vehicle. All his operational gear will be maintained at the club & will travel from the EWR , when required. His attendance is based on him being able to travel "home" before midnight. On the proviso where this is not possible, IIR can & may be used. Another option which was looked in to was the possibility of signing Maksym Drabik, as he is still unable to ride to ride in Poland due to the use of a banned substance. This, however, is still under review as it was an IV drip given & authorised by his club doctor. As far as we are aware, under ACU rules, he can still ride in another country but under their Governing Body. Note; IIR translates to irate inmate replacement 7

    Absolutely gutted if Jake goes to Redcar but THJ has eluded to this fact & even though it is not a direct announcement, he is normally one "in the know" & has eluded to this on the Redcar forum. Pleased for Jake, really, & with the travel situations for some riders riding in Europe, I can see him supplementing his wages with guest appearances in the Championship & Premiership.

    From memory, Boris Johnson gave out a start date of 17th May for entertainment venues to open. This date would not be brought forward but could be reviewed to a later date if the pandemic rate increases. There will be a few test events when supporters will be allowed. The Final at Wembley this weekend is one where 2000 supporters are allowed from each team. The snooker at Sheffield is, also, allowing supporters but at varying numbers as the Tournament progresses but supporters must wear a face mask & have 2 covid tests, 1 prior to a visit & the other 4 or 5 days after, I think. Test & trace is also applicable.

    I can think of 2 clubs that should have equipment to borrow should there be any delay in replacing their own.

    When we ran on a Sunday previously, we found running at 3pm on a warm day, the track dried out too quickly & got dusty. Rob now does the track & gets plenty of water down & rarely grades during a meeting. In 2019, we ran a few Sunday meetings starting at 5pm, 6pm & 6.30pm to, also, allow supporters to return home at reasonable times. Sorry no definitive times but can only give information based on past experiences. Hope this helps.
