Dear Money Raiser, the time is upon us agaln to

choose the locatlon for this years "Strip+

Dash"…,…,…,.Odd as lt may seem, I’m

thinking about lceland. No, not the high street

purveyor of raspberry ripple, and the home of the wondertrl "A years

food for 81.37" offer…Rey$avik.

An odd cholce, but please indulge me. Firstly,.lhere are no trees, but

plenty of dogs, so proceedlngs should move aRcng briskly. Which brings

me nicely to the climate.It can get a bit nippy. The cold has its

Handy for the shyer of our merry band, but the Icelanders have

If we decide on Iceland, I will organlse the transport. Thls will be Long

boats and pedalos, from Cape Wrath a couple of days before the date.

TBA (Total Bleedin’ Absurdity). I wlll keep you abreast of the time for

rollock adjustment,and the inside leg measurement determlnation of

thlgh lubrication.

Finally can we not have a repeat of last years incldent with the

champagne cork popping,and the poor soul adJusting their shoe laces. It

left a nasty after taste.

Your vlews and opinions are welcome ,provided you keep them to
