2 Feb 2011: That's the way the money goes . . .
Up and down the Newmarket Road and in and out The Eagle on 2 February were, in no particular order (and believe me some of them were in no particular order) the following local heroes, starting with a non-local hero, Bob Avery, who made it by car all the way from London. Then there were: Terry McCrum, Brian Daniels, Alan Crabtree, Len Ellis, Ann Clancy, Jitu Raithatha, Charles Lucas, Ian Hatfield, Alan Pawsey, Janice Pawsey, Gordon Robbie, George James, Mike Burroughs, Jim McGregor, Sue Prutton, Phill Brooks, Helen George, Jane Burgis, Pat Tate, Rory Quinn, Lynda Marshall, Judy Tassell, John Cripps, Gerry Lucioli, John Payne, Carol Bertram, Mal Loveridge and Reg Walker. Gordon bought the first round, and is still in shock.
