24th February 2010 READERS' PHOTOS OF THE ROSS PANCAKE RACES

Although we ran our article about the 'Return of the Ross Pancake Races' last Wednesday, the event was extremely popular with everybody and probably the most photographed of any Ross event in recent years. Thank you to those people sent in their own photos of the event. There were far too many to publish all but I have made up a collage below of those sent in by Andrew Meek and Rachel Bushell.

The film we made was very popular and as a result, the You Tube programming bug kicked in, jamming the view counter at 323 views within 2 hours of its upload. One day, they will get that sorted out. You Tube cannot cope with high demand within the first day of a video being uploaded and the view counter jams at, or around 300 views, remaining like it for up to a week.

If you didn't get to see the film, it is still available in last week's article and on the more permanent Pancake Races page on Wyenot which I made over the weekend. We thought the event so good, and likely to be such big a boost to tourism throughout the year and in years to come that it was worthy of more than just a one-off news page. Well done to A.R.T. (The Association of Ross Traders) and to Ross-in-Bloom for reintroducing the races!
