Following on from last year's inaugural idea to present gifts associated with this year's campaign, riders and some of the management team also received the following which were opened up in full view of everyone and with a full explanation from presenter Kevin Moore.
Trevor Swales - A Viking helmet, a fitting addition to Trevor's collection of interesting headwear worn throughout the 2009 season.
Wayne Swales - Ear defenders, to ensure some piece and quiet bearing in mind the recent additions to the family.
Henning Bager - A Boomerang, on account that he always comes back to Peterborough.
Claus Vissing - Two Velcro patches, one for the seat of his leathers the other for his seat on his machine, in the hope that they will stay together more.
Henning & Claus - Also received travel directions from Peterborough to Blunsdon avoiding the M25, in recognition of the fact that both missed the start of the ELB match in June due to an M25 traffic jam.
Kenneth Bjerre - Boxing Gloves, with reference to his recent words with Lukas Dryml following a difference of opinion on the track.
Kenneth Hansen - Piggy Bank, in reference to his bout of swine flu which forced him to miss some Panthers matches this year.
Niels Kristian Iversen - Pack of Nappies, to enable him to avoid emergency toilet breaks when needed in meetings, especially when on sky.
Mads Korneliussen - A New Pits Chair, to replace the one accidentally/on purpose broken in a fit of temper.
Ales Dryml & Karol Zabik - Danish Phrase Books, so they can understand the rest of the team on track walks etc.
Julie Frost - A Crystal Ball - Advanced planning.
Kerri Drew - A Cake Knife/Slice, a new one to replace the one that continually goes missing just when its needed, reference birthday cake presentations at post match conferences.
Rick Frost - A Hard Hat & Safety Harness - Reference a meeting between Rick and a pits wall at Swindon this year which resulted in much amusement to Julie.
The Speedway memorabilia auction of Kevlars and racing equipment, conducted by Mickie Beale and his wife Julie raised the sum of �1460 and this will be presented to the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund on behalf of Peterborough Speedway.
Owner Rick Frost said “It was a great evening and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, our guests this year from the clubs main sponsors Stanir/Shire Security, TC Harrison and RAF Careers all have been a great help to the club during 2009 and we hope of course they continue with us for 2010.
I would like to wish all everyone a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year and look forward to welcoming everyone back to the East of England Showground next year.
