Great meet, Ceres. It commemorates the Battle of Bannockburn on 24th June 1314 that was a decisive Scottish victory in the scottish war of independence.

The meet is over 690 years old.

My memory of running there in 1986 is vivid because it is the only meet I ever false started at, in the 12 years I competed. The starter told me something amusing and I was still thinking about it when I was on the blocks.

I had won a race the week before at West Lothian and the handicapper who happened to be the starter at Ceres, pulled me back about 1.5m. I suggested the penalty was a bit harsh for a 90m race.

He replied: "Paul, you won a race last week, have a look around, there's many here today who haven't won a race.....it's someone elses's turn, this week."

I laughed and thought that was a very good answer....and still thinking what a great comeback.........then I broke!

Thanks to JH for the results.

2014 will be the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn - should be some celebration.
