NEW Club Kit - Just arrived

The Long - Sleeved Driflo's in Club colours have arrived, can be worn on their own (with shorts or lycra's preferably!) and are just the job for winter racing when previously you have had to put a thermal under your vest and then feel restricted, these are round-necked for the Men and v-necked for the Ladies.  They are £16.00 each which is a great price and we have Small, Medium and Large.  Mercia sells it's Kit at cost to it's members so bag a bargain and ring or e-mail Pauline for availability.

Club Annual Dinner and Presentation Evening

1st March 2008 - 7.30
The Annual Dinner and Presentation Evening for Mercia Club Members is this year to be held at the Longville Arms near Church Stretton, and 50+ Mercians are expected to gather to enjoy good food, good wine and good company.  We are, as in the past, holding the Dinner after the Cardingmill Canter with many members "staying over" and making a  packed weekend.   Let's hope for good weather and a good turnout for the race.  Hope to see you there.
