John

I think it would be good for ribnet.... just need someone to sort rules and regs out.. doesn't need to be a set day does it? could be a timed event like round Britain..

I would be interested to run a rib..

I'm sure we could work something out, subject to you paying a substantial measuring fee of course

I guess if you want to race round the island to get the record a timekeeper isn't required, you can just phone when you start the lap

No - to gain the record, your time keepers have to see you start, then they can go off to the pub and wait for the phone call saying you are FINISHED. You still need time keepers, and they still need to see you start, its just the finish that can be done by mobile phone....

Sorry to hear you have had to call this off, Very.

Hopefully we'll be around to support the next attempt!

Perhaps you'll pop over to The Folly anyway?
