*****************************************************************

IN THE BLEAK MUDWINTER
We've won a Mobmatch for the first time since Jan 1999. That must be some sort of a record. Orion travel better these days and gave us a close run for our money.

We had to settle for silver in the Kent XC M40, M50 and Clubman's championships but our seniors won the Kent Road Relay where the M50s were again second, as they were in the BVAF XC Relay. Our Men's, Women's and YAs league teams have made a good start with a number of new faces on show.

David Taylor represented GB in the European XC Championships at Malmo and, among other good individual runs, we may mention Daniel Ayrton, Jeremy Bradley, Jennie Butler, Nick Kinsey, Joe Mills, and Michael Skinner.

FUTURE CROSS-COUNTRY FIXTURES
We hope to run a coach to Durham for the National Championships which are on Sat 24th Feb. The coach will leave on Fri 23rd, probably late morning. Anyone interested in going should contact John Baldwin.

The Kent Men's League fixture on 17th Feb will be at Parkwood Hall School, Beechenlea Lane, Swanley. By car 1M from M20/M25 junction. Follow signs for Swanley, Beechenlea Lane is on the right. By rail to Swanley, jog/bike 2M.

Vets who wish to run the SEAA Vets Championship at Maidenhead on 10th Mar will need to enter well in advance. They should contact John Baldwin or (for 40-49 group) contact Chris Fincham (Tel 020 7280 6367 (work) or 01689 829397 (home)); (for 50+ age groups) contact Peter Hamilton (Tel 7826 4238 (work) or 8692 2619 (home)).

TRACK & FIELD OFFICIALS
As usual when we get into the new year, we look towards the summer and appeal to members to help your Club by becoming T&F officials. No previous experience is necessary and there is complete flexibility as to the fixtures attended.

We will again be running a training programme as follows-

EXCELLENCE AWARDS
Bromley Excellence Awards were presented to a number of local youngsters at a ceremony at the Pavilion Leisure Centre on 28th Nov. The presentations were made by Olympic rowing gold medallist James Cracknell.

Among those receiving awards were Paul Archer (rugby & athletics), Joe Godsell (athletics), and Robert Copley (sailing) - son of John.

CHARITY SPONSORSHIP
The Club's runners raised 9,121.42 for Great Ormond Street Hospital at the 2000 London Marathon. Past President Richard Coles presented the cheque to Jessica Brandon from GOSH at the clubhouse at the end of October.

Our walkers are not yet wearing the "intelligent shoes" which detect lifting. That's my explanation as to why they overtake me when I'm running. I'm hoping they'll next invent a "kneecapper" that detects any bending. Walking is obviously a serious hazard, so much so that it's been proposed to divide the pavement in Oxford St, with a fast lane from which window-shoppers, tourists looking at guide books, dog-walkers &c would be banned. What fun for the Yellow Peril.

ARC Atlantic Rally for Cruisers
Readers of the last Gazette (No 634 pg 23) may be interested to learn that Ray Gibson and his companions completed the crossing from Gran Canaria to St Lucia in a time of 20 days & 2 hours, their boat "IMPRESSIONIST" being placed second in its class. They initially steered a south-westerly course towards Brazil before turning northwards towards the Caribbean. They encountered 40 foot waves at times but emerged unscathed.
