Is it all downhill from here?

The first Reach Valley Gravity Grand Prix (RVGGP) has been and gone, meaning we are no longer doing it for the first time!

So with that in mind, we are meeting tonight (January 21st) to discuss plans for the next event.  Whether you were an organiser, entrant, steward, spectator or inconvenienced villager, there’s a good chance you could make some suggestions that would make the  second (RVGGP) even better than the first one.

So, if you’ve got any suggestions or want to be involved in RVGGP 2016, please come along to The Trevor Arms from 8pm tonight.  If you have any questions or can not make the meeting and want to make a suggestion/get involved, please send an email to chris@glynde.info.

Does anyone have 2 spare wheelchair wheels?

We have an appeal for 2 wheel chair wheels from one our contestants if anyone can help please contact gravitygp@glynde.info.

The 2 carts we mentioned in the last post have been snapped up so are no longer up for grabs.  Sorry if you missed out.

The closing date for entries has now past and there’s only 2 weeks to go…….let’s hope the weather is better than today’s!
