Dave Harper, together with the Pre-65 Club, organised a scrambles ‘demo’ again this year which was enjoyed by all with no serious mishaps. When we arrived on Saturday afternoon at 3.30 pm, the paddock area was pretty packed already, indicating a large entry. Out of 59 machines in the programme, 30 were Greeves! The fun began on Saturday evening with the ‘Learned Apothecary’, Barry Keymer, dispensing ‘special medicine’ that guaranteed poor performance the following day! Most people seemed to enjoy the track although my 250 Griffon re-discovered its ‘gassing-up’ problem much to Dick Faggetter’s dismay. However, he enjoyed a couple of goes on my poor little Hawkstone and now he wants one! It certainly proved a hot day and gradually more and more of us seemed to wilt but better that than rain.
Add in a very well-attended show with probably the best autojumble I have seen there made it a very worthwhile event to attend.
