    Thanks to all who rode in the meeting, but more importantly maybe, thanks to all who came to watch. True, we didn't fill the place, but then to be fair, the attendances at Herne Hill had plummeted since 2003.
    And remember also, had we still been at HH then we would have been rained off!

    Obviously I am going.
    Multiple entry: Do you mean can you get a pass out? Yes you can.
    Moving around the stands: Probably not too vigilant, but if someone turns up with a ticket bearing that seat number then you will have to move.
    No matter what anyone says, no event other than the 'lympics have sold out in Lee Valley. Its got 6000 seats. We are only selling tickets for the lower tier of seats, which is 2800. If this sell out then maybe next year we will expand to the upper tiers. Tickets will be available on the day, but we like people to buy in advance because the venue ask us how many people will be attending. This has a direct bearing on the number of stewards and first aid responders that they require us to pay for.
    Rest assured that this meeting is not a profit making venture for anyone involved. It is organised by, and for, track racing enthusiasts. All we aim to do is to cover the costs so that riders can enjoy good competition, well organised, in front of an appreciative crowd and vice versa.
    If you have never been to LVVP before then this is a good reason to go.

    We can't understand why the ticket price for Revolution should be so dear compared to Manchester either. Nor can we understand why you should have to pay for each individual session when events span two or more sessions.
    For the Good Friday Meeting you will pay for a ticket which admits you to the morning session and then through to the afternoon session. That way you can watch each event from start to finish. Tickets are available from quaytickets.com or visit the website thegoodfridaymeeting.co.uk

    Think about it, Have you tried getting through the tunnel to get to Stratford by 6 for a decent warm up before 7? If you are not through before 4 then forget it. 8 is ideal. On a good day I can do it in 40 minutes: on a bad day? 3 hours!

    So all you ladies who have been training regularly at Herne Hill, if you have not already entered then entries will be taken on the day for the Women's Omnium this Sunday. Sign On by 12 for an afternoon of women only racing, interrupted only by a Derny race for men (and a couple of women).

    Just in case any of you out there don't know, the DernyFest and Women's Omnium this Sunday is dedicated to Derek. No more entries for the Dernys are being taken, but all are welcome to come and watch. There's beer and burgers, riders from all over the country plus pacers and riders from Italy and Belgium. Its free to watch but we are passing the bucket round for St Christophers Hospice, Sydenham.
    Racing starts at 12.30 and the final for the Derny race will be about 4.30.
