8. Overseas vestsmessage from Simon Elliott:

As requested by a number of members, the Committee has commissioned a version of the Beeston AC vest to run in abroad .. I’m now taking orders for delivery before autumn trips. Sizing is as the current vests and t-shirts, details on club website. Vests £20, t-shirts £22. If you’d like one, please reply to the Facebook post or message/email Simon on by 1st July please. Please note this vest is for overseas/social events only and the current vest without flag is for Summer League, national championships etc.


Good luck to everyone racing this weekend. A number of members are also tackling the Holme Pierrepont Grand Prix which finishes next week – enjoy!
