OFF TOPIC - As an aside - having a mobile device will become almost essential in the next three years as the PSTN is switched off. In the event of a power outage, you should consider a mobile device for emergency situations.

If you are referring to BT's warning that they were going to stop powering landlines, I believe that I read in the last couple of weeks that BT have done a u-turn on that decision, and have stated that, in view of the fact that many elderly and/or vulnerable people do not possess or can use a mobile, they will maintain to power the lines.

Yes - I don't think it is a full u-turn though, just a review of the process.
It's currently on hold - but once they have addressed the issues, it's likely to proceed at pace to meet the 2025 deadline.

Back to the digitisation of programmes - I think it is only likely to increase further. By opting to not engage with an online version seems like deliberately excluding themselves from the output.

Update - British GP programme was 17 quid ,and was utter dross aimed at 11 year olds. Interestingly, after feeding back to Silverstone , their MD replied , agreeing it was terrible. What I didn't know is that the circuit has no involvement whatsoever in GP programme - all down to F1 itself . Which explains a lot..

Dragstalgia programme a model of clarity and information - 3 quid !

Oulton Park Gold Cup a fiver , but well produced and informative

Croft club meeting - 'we don't do them . Covid , it is online'. Which was true , if you could get a signal and didn't mind squninting at your phone in bright sun.

I had the same answer at the GT Cup meeting at Silverstone recently, every meeting at Prescott I have been to this year has had a programme

A lot of clubs put their entry lists online a day or two before the meeting and MSVR usually have a digital programme on their website for each meeting presumably so you can print off your own programme, as you can of course with the entry lists. Clubs whose entry lists I have never found include the CSCC, HRDC, MGCC and VSCC. Not saying they don't display them somewhere but I haven't found them.

For the CSCC, go to the clubs Home Page, and click on Calendar/Booking. All info for future race events is displayed including the Entry List, when published.

Rather to my surprise, I now realise how much I miss a printed programme. Yes, I have and use all available technology but that is for the most appropriate purposes. Add in that most clubs are producing "electronic" publications which are nothing of the sort. They are just a PDF copy of what they would otherwise have printed. As a consequence they are hard (impossible/impracticable?) to read online. If you are going to produce an online version, give the job to a skilled online person, not a printer.

I get the pdfs printed professionally when I get home so I can have a copy. Club meets I do A5 and professional series I do A4, or 11x8.5 over here.

A bit like those fake tickets you can now get for evens that had tickets on your phone.
