NT had previously reported that Rooster were again doing the members discount and the new code has been issued and posted in the members section.
DH mentioned that we had, as requested, created a link on the BLSA site to the Central Blokart Club website but as yet there has been no evidence of CBC provided links back to The BLSA or posting the other information we had requested.
