Firstly I would like to thank all the contributors to the previous issue. all items were gratefully received and everything sent in was published. For the newer members The Pennine Way is our yearly journal written for and by Pennine folk. I am going to put this same message on our facebook page. As it’s a closed group I will put a link to issue 4 so you can see how it looks. It’s an electronic format as shown and ideally it should be in a magazine form. If any new members have got the software and technical skills to create a magazine please get in touch.
Here are a few ideas for the sort of thing we are looking for:
Pennine Profiles: A very popular item has been a short questionnaire of about 6 or 7 questions I send out to 4 people. The Pennine Way is only for our club members and won’t be plastered over the t’interweb.They are running based questions. I’m not asking for your bank details or anything personal. Mind you if you DO want to give me your bank details I’d quite like a new bike.
Race Reports: Local races,national races,international races. Tell us about it.
Big Runs: Bob Graham, The Ramsay Round, Paddy Buckley, The Wicklow Round, let us know.
Little Runs: Have you had a long term injury and enjoyed your first tentative run out?
New Members: New to the club? Introduce yourself.
Juniors: You are important members of the club. Have you bagged your first mountain? Or tell us about a race or a handicap you’ve done.
Recipes: I don’t want it to turn into mumsnet but do you have any pre/ mid/ post race or run cake, soup or drink recipes? Personal bests, medals and stunning views are great but let’s be honest it’s all about the cake isn’t it?
Cyclists: Been out on your bike recently? Tell us all about it.
Unusual Hobbies: Do you have a strange pastime? Anything like Mr Joddrells’ banana classic would be brilliant.
Photos: All photos are welcome especially any Thursday night group photos, action shots or a nice landscape photo. I’ll try and use as many as I can.
Blasts from the past: Any ahem senior members do you have any old results or Pennine documents of interest?
These are just a few ideas to be going on with. All items will be gratefully received. Please could you send in your articles in files that I can open!
It’s not a Booker prize or a Nobel prize competition so don’t be intimidated, have a go!
If you could send me your articles by 1st January 2016 I will try to get it out within the week.
Looking forward to an avalanche of replies.
