It is with great sadness that I have to announce that John Dodd has passed away after a short illness.
A keen sportsman and runner himself he gained immense satisfaction from helping others achieve their sporting goals and particularly enjoyed helping at longest day especially with Martin organising the event .My own memories of John are Longest Day 2005. He was there at the Sutton Maddock island in pouring rain marshalling the bike route and encouraging us with the words "only 12 miles to go", when eventually finishing many hours later, he was there guiding us to a chair, washing down legs and fetching a cup of tea.
A true gentleman
Our thoughts are with Martin, his mum Alice and their family.

Bobbington Time Trials
Thursday night (12th) saw an excellent turn out from the club with 12 members competing on a warm summers evening. We are now midway through this season with 8 events completed and 7 more to go and so we've compiled a league table (just for fun) of BCT results thus far .
