Hope you had a nice weekend and managed to avoid the ‘freezing rain’(thought that was snow) that we had on Saturday night.
The Christmas stages ran at Croft on Sunday but I haven’t had anyone that was doing it write a report or give me any details so all I can guess is that it was cold and windy! Never known Croft to not be cold and windy!
In a more serious note we will once again be asking for volunteers for the John Robson!
We are going to keep pestering and hollering until we have enough crews so it would be best for all of you could volunteer sooner rather than later and I can get back to rabbiting on about other things.
Please volunteer by sending an email to:Chiefmarshal@hexhammotorclub.co.uk
Which as you might have guessed will put you through to the chief marshal who will put you on the list!
The event can not run without you fine folks.
If you have already volunteered you will be contacted in due course once we begin allocating.
Ps here’s a picture of a lovely sunrise taken whilst marshalling on LE JOG

The John Robson/Hexham Historic will take place on the 23rd of February. The organisation is ticking along nicely but now it’s down to you fine folks!
We needs marshals and we need to start being able to place people on locations. So please please get in touch either message the Facebook page or we will shortly have an email address for you to contact.
Your name will go on the list (don’t tell him Pike) and we will allocate you to a location.
Please let us know how many people will be in your crew and if you are able to stay out all night. We expect the first car to finish around 2am so you should get plenty of beauty sleep still!
We will invite you all to join us at the finish for a meal and the results.
Thanks all we look forward to your support
Luke Tait and Josh Davison!

Busy weekend marshalling on the 2018 Le Jog Rally.
Sunday night stood in a rather chilly spot on the last regularly section of the day before the crews headed back to Slaley Hall for there overnight halt. Then out early on Monday morning for the start of the days first regularity sections on the southern fringe of Kielder forest.
Thankful not as chilly as the night before but at least all the competitors were smiling so Slaley Hall bar staff must have been on form
Next outing will be the first 12 car of the 2019 series on January 16 which entries are filling up fast, see the newly revamped website for details/ regs etc

Fantastic turn out by Hexham & DMC members on the Le Jog Classic Rally, no fewer than 18 folk turning out to man the controls and gates on the Sunday evenings final regularity run over a very windswept Waskerley Moor, great pity only 35 cars came through. Despite a late finish on the Sunday morning, there was a good turn out a, t a very early hour, to run Mondays first regularity of the day a mammoth affair up the North Tyne Valley, 6 controls and 6 gates, all manned by Hexham members........ FANTASTIC.
