What a disaster I had today ! if our club had been told the start was changed to 10am we would not have arrived for the 9.30 start. I got cold in the icy air and I never recovered. Then Mervyn's chain broke at the base of Ballycarton and twisted the links, after 40 minutes it beat us and we could not repair it so Mervyn's wife rescued him and I went home. Not a day I would like to remember.
