UK Pro Tour Tynemouth ( 23rd & 24th October 2010 )
25th October 2010
Just returned from an 800 mile round trip serving at the UK Pro Tour in Tynemouth (Nr Newcastle). A long trip but a fantastic weekend.
A big thanks in partticular to RAchel Farish for helping to co-ordinate things in the North East, and for my road trip companions, Emily Saunders and Dan Evans.
We served teas and coffees, hot chocolate and soup to officials, spectators, and competitors, in pretty extreme cold, rainy and windy conditions.
In addition Phil Williams was on the judging panel, with Dan braving the conditions as the beach marshall.
Met some potential new CS North East Crew, so watch this space for further developments !
Big thanks to Dave Reed, Johno, Nick, Ester and the crew for putting the event on. Well done to all the winners especially Russ Winter (Open Champion) and Lewis Clinton (Pro Junior Champion)
Tough weekend, but well worth the trip. Check out the double gallery for all the photos. Phil
