Steve Dolby – Leisure Kit

Steve Dolby is retiring from being our BQA Leisure Kit coordinator, the BQA would like to say a Big Thank-You to Steve for organizing and sending out the Leisure Kit for as long as I can remember … it must be at least 10 years! He’s done a great job for us and we shall miss his reliable service.

Steve and Clair have been members of Lincsquad from its early days, and have helped make the club it is today. Steve enjoyed Quadrathlon, and although he took a while to master a K1, once he got the hang of it he had some excellent results and went on to represent ‘Team GB Quad’ at the World and European Championships and then went on to complete several Ironman Triathlons! He helped promote the BQA and was Chairman of Lincsquad giving 100% commitment and ensuring everyone was happy … I dont think I have ever seen him without a big smile …. maybe just once during a capsize!

Many of you will know Clair from her Mobile Cupcakes ‘n Coffee Stop, she has replenished many a quadrathlete and triathlete with her scrummy cakes and hot drinks after their races! Not to be out shone by Steve’s athletic ventures she also put on the lycra and represented Lincsquad at the National Relays and went on to do the Great North Run.

I have no doubt they will be missed by all us and their Lincsquad Friends!

But its very exciting times ahead for them both, they have just moved to Porthmadog, North Wales to run the Tudor Lodge B&B. There is no doubt you will be greeted with big smiles and wonderful hospitality, and going by the bacon butties they used to serve the breakfasts will be AWESOME!! We wish them all the very best and I’m sure when word gets round to who’s running the place there bookings will be full. So remember if your over that way, racing or training in the beautiful Snowdonia  Tudor Lodge is the place to stay! Tudor Lodge


GOOD LUCK THE DOBBERS …. and hope to see you soon
