Palindrome date skate. Also my birthday. Come as join me as I recreate a route I first came up with last year. It's a little loopy so let's see if the scout & blockers go the right way this time :)
Check the route on http://www.lfns.co.uk

Di scount is a new role. I don't think it is in the Marshal's Wiki yet. Might have something to do with a certain skate shop. ;)

Been studying the radar all day. There will be rain tonight but each time it looks like it will make it in time, it splits and comes no further. Suspect it will be a late call today but I think maybe only a 30% chance of a skate at the moment. Keep an eye here or on www.lfns.co.uk homepage for a go/no show status update around 6pm.

Happy birthday Rick :)
The Asbox transmitter is charged and ready. Does someone have a music mix or should I bring an ipod, assuming we get a GO?

on the theme of palindromes, this poem is pretty cool.

Doppelganger

Entering the lonely house with my wife
I saw him for the first time
Peering furtively from behind a bush --
Blackness that moved,
A shape amid the shadows,
A momentary glimpse of gleaming eyes
Revealed in the ragged moon.
A closer look (he seemed to turn) might have
Put him to flight forever --
I dared not
(For reasons that I failed to understand),
Though I knew I should act at once.


I puzzled over it, hiding alone,
Watching the woman as she neared the gate.
He came, and I saw him crouching
Night after night.
Night after night
He came, and I saw him crouching,
Watching the woman as she neared the gate.


I puzzled over it, hiding alone --
Though I knew I should act at once,
For reasons that I failed to understand
I dared not
Put him to flight forever.


A closer look (he seemed to turn) might have
Revealed in the ragged moon.
A momentary glimpse of gleaming eyes
A shape amid the shadows,
Blackness that moved.


Peering furtively from behind a bush,
I saw him for the first time,
Entering the lonely house with my wife.

I've got some tired ones but if you have something you'ld rather listen to then bring that.

On second thoughts. The radar has joined up. It's going to rain from 18:30 for almost an hour. That means no chance of drying up in time for 8 and the route has a lot of bus routes on it and will be terribly slippy so I'm going to have to cancel it. Most pissed off as I have been planning this one since I discovered my birthday was on a Friday this year (about 4 months ago) At least I got to skate it last night on a route check.

I will be going to the Victoria pub for probably a couple of hours from 7pm. Not booking anything just getting some wine. If anyone would care to join me for birthday drinkies, then you would be most welcome. What happens after that is going to be up for negotiation.
