Local email for local people

Ever wished you could keep your email address when you change ISPs?
Well now you can.
You can have your very own exclusive* "@catterline.org" email address that you can use regardless of who your ISP is.
There are two options;
  • email forwarding : The simplest option - your @catterline.org address just redirects mail to wherever you normally receive your email, e.g. your yahoo, hotmail or ISP account. When you change your email address, you just change the forwarding address on @catterline.org instead of having to tell everyone to update their address books (which they never do anyway).
  • POP3 mailbox : The slightly geeky option - you download your email from the server just like normal using Outlook, Outlook Express, Pegasus, Thunderbird or whatever email program you prefer.

Catterline Cycles 50 for Childline

Sep 30 2006 - 9:00am
Sep 30 2006 - 4:00pm

******** STOP PRESS ********

So far we have 15 people taking part, but there are still plenty of places left. It won't be ultra competitive (apart from the usual suspects, of course Laughing), so if you fancy coming along for a gentle cycle and to raise some dosh for ChildLine in the process  please let us know as soon as possible to make it easier to plan.

The more the merrier!

**************************

The annual Catterline Charity Cycle Ride will be taking place at the end of September. This year it is in aid of ChildLine, and there is a choice of two routes; for the “Eager Beavers” there is a 50 mile chase, and for those seeking a more “Leisurely Pursuit” there will be a 35 mile meander.

Catterline Cartie Grand Slam

Monymusk Cairtie Race "Once a fortnight is plenty" achieved the superb feat of winning the Monymusk Cairtie Race today to complete the "2006 Grand Slam" of North East Cartie Races.
Monymusk is quite a different event to Catterline; the course is 3.2 miles long, and has a very steep first section of perhaps three quarters of a mile, followed by over two miles of rough ground, tracks and fields. Some parts of it are up hill, and the carties need to be pushed nearly all the way. The speedo on the Tequila Slammer showed 33.2 mph as the maximum speed in the first section (and it would've been quicker if I hadn't hit a bale half way down Embarassed).
Once a fortnight's time of 19 minutes and 28 seconds was exceptionally quick and made them the clear winners, and they also picked up the prize for the best named cartie. Tequila Slammer's time was rather slower, but it still managed to take the "Best Design" prize. The Slammer crossed the line in about 24 minutes, but one of the team members had developed stitch on the way down so crossed the line several minutes later. He was, however, awarded a consolation prize for his efforts - 5 litres of Mackies Ice-cream!

Gala Fund

It's taken a while to get around to a final published figure, but the Gala Fund now stands at £2394. We've already given a few small grants out, including £150 to the Gardening Club to put planters around the village, and £70 to cover the hosting fees for Catterline Online for the next two years.
We are still keen to hear of any other suggestions for local projects that are looking for funding, so if you have any ideas for projects or suggestions for worthy recipients then please do let us know.

"Once a Fortnight" wins again

 "Once a Fortnight is Plenty" - this year's Supreme Champion from the Catterline Cartie Challenge - once again showed its class with a convincing win at the Stonehaven Carties Annual Race Event (SCARE). Callum Marshal drove three clean runs to win the prize for both the single fastest run and the best aggregate time. Andy Poppleton finally managed to complete a cartie run without injuring himself to come second on aggregate with Urie Blue, and Lewis and Tom Roseweir grabbed third place aboard Elijah.
In the junior competition, Callum Bailey came first and Brendan Hall was second, and the Slammer won the prize for the best crash for not one but two distinctly Lemming-esque high speed rollovers.
"Once a Fortnight" and The Slammer will both be travelling up to Monymusk next weekend, with "Once a Fortnight" hoping their run of good form will continue and that they'll "complete the triple". I'll be happy just to keep the Slammer the right way up...
