Stafford Sprint-O Training results

VictoriaParkStaffordBob Dredge organised this week’s Sprint-O training in Victoria Park, Stafford:

“I hope you all enjoyed the tremendous weather we laid on for the first training event – and the courses. It was pleasing to see a good turnout, especially from our juniors who I hope got a taste for the fun – and trickiness – of sprints and butterfly loops.

Results are available here. I have tried to compile these from the download and also your self recording, but apologies to at least 3 whose time/SI card details I can not make out – possibly because the dibber was not cleared or was used twice as loans were so popular.

A real thanks to Claire, Carol, Tom and Jonathon who volunteered and collected in controls after the event.

See you next week!”
