Accompanied by his daughter Alie (aged 12), Peter George (M66) made the
short trip from the Isle of Dogs to Brunswick House to be presented with the
April Logo draw winnings of £300 by Board member Keith Cain.
Peter is a relative newcomer to both Dial-a-Cab and the cab trade having been in the building trade up to five years ago, at which time he decided to do the Knowledge. After trying to drive without a radio, finally joined DaC two years ago.
Ironically, after leaving school some 20 years ago, Peter worked in Brunswick Place as a printer having done an apprenticeship there.
In addition to Alie, Peter and wife Dawn have another daughter, Leni (age 9). As a dedicated keep-fitter, Peter goes to the gym several times a week and also likes a round or three of golf when he isn't working. He is also the coach for Millwall Albion under-16 football team. He also drives a taxi when he has time!
PETER PICKS UP LOGO
As a fairly new driver, Peter had no choice in having the DaC logos on his
doors, but says that it is something that we should all have because of the
identity it gives us. "We are very easily recognised on Dial-a-Cab
and that must be a good thing for the company," said Peter.
As for the money, half of it is going on a golfing break for Peter
to Barnham Broom in Norfolk with the rest going towards their family
holiday which Alie explained was going to be in Gran Canaria.
"I've got a part-time job and saving up my spending money," Allie told us with pride, "I think Mummy and Daddy are saving theirs as well!"
Well done Peter...
|DAC DRIVER HITS GOLD IN MOCATRA ANGLING|
Once again Dial-a-Cab have sponsored the Mocatra Angling Open, which was
held at Gold Valley Lakes in Hampshire with DaC drivers doing very well...
Call Sign's Captain Chaos, aka Tony Blythe (T92), had seen an eventful 2001 having just moved upmarket from E17 to leafy E14 while a broken hand had scuppered many of his angling plans and stopped him writing his report! Consequently, Call Sign's man with the rod has had to hand the pen over to Jeff Clark (C25) aka Grizzly Adams.
The DaC sponsored Mocatra Open produced a record winning weight for the previous year's runner up Mickey Hood, who is a full-time angler and part-time taxi driver who never 'carps' at his passengers! Mickey did the business this year off a Peg 8 on Gold Lake, taking 22 of the lake's smaller carp for his record 80 - 14 - 0 record weight.
DaC's Billy Baldock (E27) with his Dial-a-Cab Shield
The runner-up was Freddie (Kruger) Sykes who caught the biggest dog of
the day when he included a 14 - 7 - 0 carp in his catch of 57 - 14 - 0. He
won the KPM trophy for the best carp not to mention the £100 cash prize.
Together with the £125 runners-up prize, Freddie had a good day!
and 44 - 8 - 0 all taken on the feeder.
This year saw a new name on the Dial-a-Cab trophy when Billy Baldock (E27) took the DaC Shield for the highest placed radio driver with 42 - 14 - 0 going onto the scales.
As the presentation in the clubhouse ended with no less than 27 anglers picking up prizes, there was one prize still to be decided: The Lucky Dip! You don't have to be a good angler to win this as the worst angler on the planet, Steve Moults (stick float angling) proved, nevertheless, his name came out the hat and he won a trip to Paris for two. He is looking for a partner to accompany him and word has it that the first person at the airport canteen to buy him a cuppa gets it!
Our thanks to all our sponsors especially Dial-a-Cab, Brian Rice, KPM, Doug Sherry and the LTDA.
Captain Chaos (T92) and Grizzly Adams (C25)
