The marking station at The Lion Brewery, 104 Guildford Road, Ash, Surrey, GU12 6BT., has closed 😢 and won't be in use for the future races. We thank Mike Armitage and his good lady Lyndsey for their work and all they have done for the club, from your Secretary on behalf of the Management Committee.
This news flash brings a much brighter and optimistic message from the National Flying Club regarding the 2021 Grand National. The hope is that a route to San Sabastian has been found and after many hours of negotiation there is a quiet assurance that the NFC Grand National could take place from San Sabastian on the 31st of July. Obviously, as you can tell with the tone of my writing, nothing has been set in stonebut as a Committee we think it is best to let the members know to allow them to prepare their candidates. As you all know in the current situation there are no guarantees but the move to the end of July will give us around seven weeks of preparation and if in the meantime we are allowed to go into France, the Grand Nation will revert to Pau, also on the 31stJuly. Any organisation who would wish to join in this race as a joint liberation are welcome to contact the Chairman, Mr Paul Naum.
