HIGH ENDEAVOUR & LOW FINANCE
The Track & Field season ended on a high note with the Vets winning the Southern Ch, the YAs again National Champs and the Juniors winning both the National Championship and the European Club Cup. Next the Cross-Country.

Such doings have, however, largely been pushed aside in the sports columns by the financial troubles of the BAF. While one may not envy the task taken on by David Moorcroft, the ordinary club runner who pays all his own race entry fees, his travel and accomodation, buys his own kit and pays the Physio, is unlikely to waste much sympathy over the past policies which have landed the BAF in it.

A DAY'S A LONG TIME IN ATHLETICS
Those who've been Recorders for our One-Hour race at Norman Park will admire the dedication of their counterparts in the recent Sri Chinmoy 24-Hour race at Tooting Bec. Admiration for the runners (who included our John (E) Turner and Dick Griffin) almost goes without saying, especially in view of the wet and cold conditions this year.

Tony Smith and his team of helpers will be well-known to any who have run the Mon and Sat races at Battersea Park and who will know of their quiet efficiency.
Mention must be made too of the runners' families and friends with their support tents circling the track to provide a bit of temporary shelter and rest. Support also came from a string of visiting wellwishers and from further afield (it even shut our Pres up while Colin Poole made his mobile phone enquiries from our Clubhouse).

At the corresponding 24-Hr event in Adelaide recently (also organised by Sri Chinmoy (Ozzi branch)), a runner named Kouros (appropriately of Greek descent) ran 303.5 Km (about 187M), equivalent to 7 Marathons. A world best, and likely to stay so for some time.

NEWS of MEMBERS
Simon Lloyd has made such a good recovery from his road accident that he was able to complete the Club Five, though still incorporating various bits of hardware.

Among our London Marathon charity runners is Trevor Wood who has raised more than 1000 for a special needs school in St.Mary Cray.

At 18, Gareth Griffin is believed to be the youngest runner to complete the London to Brighton. He joined Trevor, John (E) Turner and Brian Smith in the Blackheath team.

SUMMER ROAD HANDICAP
The event is held monthly on Wed evenings Apr-Sept and is now well-established, attracting over 40 this year (summarised in Results). The course, of approx 5Km, starts and finishes at the rail bridge in Tiepigs Lane. It is, as they say, undulating and a good challenge to runners of all ages & standards. Give yourself a treat - try it next year.

The NOT-SO-SIMPLE GAME of GOLF
I was deeply concerned at the level of ignorance displayed about the game in a recent Courier, where it was referred to as 'something to do with birdies'. No doubt if your name is Tiger Woods or Greg Norman it would be that simple.

The problem is that golf is a game where a ball of about 1" inches diam is placed on a ball of about 8000 miles diam, the idea being to hit the smaller but not too much of the larger. To do this you are allowed to choose from one of 14 different clubs, preferably carried by someone else, and the problem is that the hitting area of a club is not much bigger than a large tablespoon.

The game is played over several hundred acres of green belt (Your Courier Editor thought that was Judo) divided into 18 fairways, the idea being to get the ball from tee to green (God willing via the fairway) and then into a 4" inch hole in the fewest number of strokes. A morceau de gateau you might say. Unfortunately, there are many impedimenta placed to catch the unwary, or merely careless, golfer. On either side of the fairway is long grass into which your ball might disappear, not to mention numerous trees. There are also strategically placed sandfilled excavations called bunkers, and there might even be the occasional lake. Holes vary in length from 100 to 600 yds and you have a card which tells you the total strokes you should take at each hole. This total is known as par. Now we get ornithological. If by some amazing piece of luck (I mean skill) you manage to complete the hole in one stroke less than par that is called a birdie (Ah-Ha, I knew it), two less is an eagle and three less an albatross. Now you might think that Harriers, being part of the bird family, would have an advantage - dream on. The average par total on a golf course is 70 strokes. At our two recent meetings Harriers scored anywhere between 85 and 105 for a round. This implies that at many holes Harriers were apoplectic. Any score over par is rather unpleasantly called a bogie or in some cases a double or triple bogie. However, all is not lost. In order to cater for the widely differing standards there is a handicap system (Oh No, not Freemantle). So supposing the par total was 70, you subtract this from your best total of strokes, so Brian O'Flynn who plays off a handicap of 13 (pretty good eh!) expects to go round a course in 83 strokes. Your handicap gets adjusted relative to your latest score.

But if all else fails the truly crap golfer can take heart from the fact that golf and sex are two of the few things you can enjoy without being any good at!

DAD'S ARMY ATTACKS EUROPE (27th-29th Sept 1997)
(The names have been changed to protect the guilty)
My nerves were shattered by the 4 a.m reveille plus the Sergeant Major's late arrival. However, we all jumped out of his jeep's path as it screeched to a halt on the Bromley pavement. At the assembly point, Dover, some miracle found us all on the same boat, but, when all seven cars emerged at Calais John Davidson was missing. The Sergeant Major was furious, desertion on the assault beaches being a capital offence. John explained that he was delayed by a Red Cross nurse but this only made the Sergeant Major red & cross.

The advance in convoy across France, Belgium and into Luxembourg went to plan. Gen. Patton's Battle of the Bulge was repeated except that beer consumed en route made a bulge in many a Blackheath Harrier. We prepared methodically for the race by attending Mark Crisp's Veteran initiation rites which consisted of wine, roast pig, four hours dancing - oh, and wine. Heathens did not feature prominently at the sharp end the following morning where five apparently emaciated Kenyans (i.e not bulging with wine and roast pig) knocked off the half marathon in around the hour. Mark Ellison was our first man home in a creditable 83 mins. What was my time? Did I finish? Did I START? Got any wine?

In the evening we gathered for a drink (well what did you expect?) at Mark Crisp's rambling farm and then all on to a nearby restaurant. Well, nearly all. John Davidson was missing and a search operation had to be mounted. There he was, back at the farm. Yes, you've guessed it: locked in the lavatory. Oh dear ... John Davidson
