Calling Ray, Earth to Ray

Now that I have your attention have you heard anything more about the Ice Karting event suggested by SPP???? Really looking forward to this one....

Quote:
Bristol Ice Rink is also available for corporate hire, and for thrill seekers, why not try one of the Ice Karting sessions featuring amazing karts on ice! Available for groups of 10+ with sole use of the rink.

Re: Calling Ray, Earth to Ray

Hey Stu !! yes its still in the pipeline, I think the best thing is to sort something after Chrimbo as I think a lot of the guys (and me ) are going to be stretched to the limit with work and other commitments, what do the rest of you guys and gals think ?

Regards
Ray

ps Sean and I are also planning a bowling night in the early part of the new year

Not really as the ice is only 10mm thick - wear a wet suit

Re: Calling Ray, Earth to Ray

Well if it can be done in Bristol that sounds good - we look as if we have a few indoor events to start off the new year.
