This site is dedicated to all the guys who donned the blue winged Hawk from 1969 onwards and in particular to those who built the track in Kingswood Drive where Scotland versus England internationals and the 1970 NACSA Individual Finals were staged. Also a big thanks to Neil Grant and Ron Young who spent many hours recording and tabulating race results at a time before PCs were invented!! and not forgetting Ian Welsh who secured McTaggart and Mickel's agreement to our using the disused tennis courts, without which none of this would have happened

Return with us now to these days of yore! Enjoy!!
