A successful day on the raised track despite the rival attractions of Thai food and “scantily clad dancers” at the nearby Thai festival. But what was more remarkable was that, with the exception of the Shirleys and one other, the day was staffed entirely by new members that we have acquired in the last year or so. Established members were conspicuous by their absence. Looks like the raised track will experience a renaissance under the new Raised Track Group, co-ordinated by Pete and Allan. Thanks are due to all those (some from afar) who attended. Over the counter Santa ticket sales also commenced and the sales gazebo will be a regular feature during September and possibly beyond.
