well after setting off down the chester road ( almost to chester ) we arrived at the stretch known as the common stretch. one look at the cut and it was decided to move to wood lane as the origional stretch looked like the english channel during the windy season! anyway dave and tony did their usual excellenent pegging out duties. ( not easy) i drew peg 3 so not to far to walk as soon as i blew the whistle the wind changed, like a bloody hurricane blowing down the cut i knew it was going to be hard going but no where near as bad as it turned out the gathering of the clan
