Are you attending in a professional or social capacity, GC? I don’t have the choice unfortunately as I’m working but both the quality and quantity of the runners looks a bit disappointing. Brocklesby Park would be my meeting of choice this weekend.
I’m on standby if required, HJ, but I shouldn’t think that will be likely – Iain is probably doing the race-reading. I’ll still have the clipboard, bins, worksheets, etc with me and do a few races in between holding court with whoever turns up.
I’ve never done either Godstone or Brocklesby and the latter certainly looked a little more appealing on paper (even before we get to the fact that it’s one of the most superbly presented courses in the country), but I need to visit my little bro in Lewisham on Sunday night, and that’s a bit easier to reach from Surrey than North-East Lincolnshire.
Plus, as mentioned in the OAP thread, the real human interest story of the day takes place at Godstone in the form of David Robinson’s return to the saddle.
The patron saint of lower-grade fare. A gently critical friend of point-to-pointing. Kindness is a political act.
