To re-iterate Martyn’s point.
It was arranged at short notice. The original date was cancelled at 24-48 hrs notice. The second date was finalised with four days notice. It was on a Friday and only Monsters or singles were required.
Monster/singles owners with the ability to take a day off work and get to the Cotswolds at short notice still only gave us a handful of participants, so to expect to rope in a couple of ladies too was perhaps being a little ambitious.
As one who actually got to speak (for all of 9 seconds - yes I’m sad and I timed it!) I have some sympathy for those who travelled a lot further, gave more of their time and incurred greater expense (like Colin) and who never got a word broadcast.
And as a small part of an excellent overall programme, I’m glad the DOC were involved rather than any of the other clubs. I mean, if the emphasis was on Monsters, where were the UK Monster Club? Shows our strength really.
