11/12/2013 - Sponsorship Update
In mid-September I received a letter from a vice-president at AGR, a Norwegian oil and gas company, who had been very generous sponsors of the Black Rock '5' in 2012 and 2013.
Sadly this informed me that they were withdrawing their support for 2014. I of course questioned this action and wrote to the CEO of the company in the knowledge that the decision to become sponsors of the event for three years had been taken by the (since departed) CEO who came from Norway to take part in the race in 2012. I'm sad to report that I did not receive a reply.
So all I can do now is thank AGR for their substantial generosity for the last two years and start the search for new sponsors for the future.
I'll keep you posted........
