A magnificent effort from Highfield Farm puts David Manning into a clear lead in Tumblers Club (but watch out David: wife Sara is still kicking on in third place) - see the Tumblers page for details of other carnage and minor abrasions.

A Christmas prezzie for
point-to-point enthusiasts

Stuck for ideas of what to give a point-to-point enthusiast this Christmas? Why not try a GARTHORPE 2015 PREMIER CAR PASS that gives reserved front parking for all five race-days in the same numbered personal spot at the country’s premier point-to-point race course. The cost is £175 (as opposed to £250 if you pay by the day). Each pass, which is tax disc size, admits four people per car.
You can buy a Premier Car Pass online now here. Follow the prompts and type ‘Premier pass’ as your Short Description. Or contact MHC Chairman Joey Newton via the Melton Hunt Club website Contact page.

The Inland Lifeboat

Lifeboat The heroic deeds of the Inland Lifeboat passed into legend with the untimely death of Charlie Brown. However, for those with short memories, we present again for your Xmas entertainment the story of its formation and the fabled Saga itself. The Lifeboat was renowned for rescuing cyclists who had become navigationally challenged and sometimes incoherent with enthusiasm after a Meet. The Saga epic retells a celebrated incident at Eye Kettleby Hall where the Lifeboat with Cox’n Brown at the helm battled through mountainous traffic in Melton to come to the assistance of an errant cyclist who had mislaid his brakes and was In Distress.

As the nights draw in, evening frosts return and scent picks up, Charlie's avuncular presence and gin-dry sense of humour in the field are greatly missed.
