The AGA All Comers championship reached the halfway stage on Saturday (28th March) at Larkhill. It was what you would call typical Larkhill weather (cold), but the welcome was as warm as ever and there was another landmark for the AGA sponsorship as we sponsored our first ever Mens Open race.
On Tuesday (31st Marsh) The Times published a full-page all about UK point-to-point racing, which was written by their horse-racing correspondent, Alan Lee – Racing Writer of the Year! It was a real privilege to be able to talk to him at length about the AGA sponsorship, my own involvement in pointing and also pointing in general. It was a great article which will hopefully have been seen by a sizeable audience, and it was nice to get a mention.
A quick drink in the lorry park (see above photo) was very welcome and much appreciated, but there were was some AGA branding to take down so I had to kick on. Beazo helped me to put it up and Len Vickery helped me to take it down, with the last word going to Len “I’ve taken hundreds of these down at the Royal Show over the years, get it square on!”
