    No, thank you Annie - waiting on some source material - I am assured I'll have it by the end of the week.

    Jester Challenge site has published a freely-downloadable pdf of a nice little guide to the 1972 OSTAR and its competitors - including of course Mike Richey & Jester and Jock McLeod & Ron Glas. A bargain at 30p in 1972.

    Chris, thanks for spotting that and for passing it on. I've added it to and have updated our Jester Challenge mention in Junk Information > Useful Links > Other Websites. The event is also featured in Join In > Other Projects and Events.

    Fascinating historical document, Chris.  Thanks for the link!

    Well, progress has slowed a little in the last few months. I blame day-job, and the advent of sailing conditions.

    Part I & II are still in my 'Box' directory. Part III was threatening to become over-large so I have split it into Parts III and IV. Part III, taking us up to around 2000, is also now available to anyone who wants to take a critical look and offer me some feedback (still awaiting a couple of images for this part). See Members Area->Your Files->Documents->Chris Gallienne->History. Part IV is probably around 50% complete.

    Part III covers the somewhat controversial developments by Bunny Smith & al.,  and the subsequent JRA-funded research project at Exeter University. Many members will remember these developments, and some will have played a part. I expect they will therefore understand them better than I, and I hope may offer corrections and/or constructive criticism.

    Chris,

    I know you are a busy man, so no pressure on this - is there any progress on the project now the day-job is no longer a factor?

    Roy.
