The Lemming Goes under The Hammer

The LemmingA perfect opportunity for those without the time to build a cartie for this year's Cartie Challenge - buy last year's Best Engineered cartie on eBay !
The Lemming was immortalized on YouTube after its spectacular performance in the 2006 Cartie Challenge, and has a well deserved reputation as being an exceptionally well made and rugged cartie. It has many features that are simply not found on other machines, including;
  • Safety Roll Cage
  • Three point inertia reel seat belt
  • 4 wheel disc brakes
  • Rack & pinion steering system, with adjustable sensitivity
  • Padded seat, on sliding rails for front back adjustment
The reserve price is very reasonable for a machine of such pedigree, especially if you spread the cost between your team members. Factor in not having to spend hours trying to build one yourself whilst enduring all the sighing and eye rolling from the other half and you may get yourself an absolute bargain. And if that isn't enough - the Lemming ushers have very generously agreed to donated half the profit to the Gala Fund.

All manner of piratey shenanigans are going to give Catterline Gala a distinctly salty tang this year. Join in the fun by coming dressed as a pirate, visit Treasure Island, take part in the one-legged race, or just wander about saying "Yaaaaaaaarrrrr" a lot.

As ever, the Gala will be on the second weekend in June, which will be the 8th this year. More details will be announced nearer the time.

Lottie's Xmas Letter


"Well hello everybody! I apologise for not sending a round robin sooner, have just been so busy i haven't had time to come to ICT at all!

well what have we been up to...soooo much i just dont know where to start!We have got a very set routine during the week, on a Monday and Wednesday and Friday we go to the learning centre from 9 until 10 to help out with the kids that are struggling, usually with their English. On a Friday we have an art class with all the learning centre kids which i particularly enjoy. Teaching them portrait was particularly amusing! This isnt happening at the moment though because its the summer holidays for the kids so they arent at school.
