THE Rebels were forced to cancel their Christmas Cracker Meeting for a second time after heavy snow covered the Oaktree Arena.

Rebels promoter Debbie Hancock said: “We felt that it was best for all concerned, especially the riders and the fans, if we made the early decision to call off the meeting as it will save people any unnecessary travel arrangements.”

The meeting has now been re-arranged for Friday, February 8, with tapes up on heat one at 7.30pm.
