A healthy turnout is expected when the annual end-of-season Video Night takes place at the Thomas Morton Hall on Friday (start time 7.30pm).

Admission is what it has been throughout the 22 years we have staged the event, ?2 for adults and 50p for juveniles and OAPs.

The format will be the traditional one ? start time 7.30pm, about one hour of action on the big screen, an interval for a word from riders and promoters, the raffle and the quiz answers, then another hour of action to finish some time after 10.

As always we will have a vote for Race of the Season, and to assist deliberations we have just put TWELVE heats from 2008 in the EMTV section of this website at

Whether or not you cast a vote on Friday at the show, these make good viewing.

There are always some early arrivers, so this year there is a Photo slideshow with a few hundred photos, some great memories from a great season. It's really good, in fact it might be better than the videos! That will be playing from 6:50pm.

On sale we will have:

ARMADALE HIGHLIGHTS DVD 2008: More than 4 hours, more than 150 heats, about 30 interview clips plus a crash sequence - ?15.

CHAMPIONS' CALENDAR 2009: A superb production by Allan McDade with photography by S-M-P - ?10.

Also of course Maggie's Souvenir Stall.
