There will be collection buckets around at the event if anyone wishes to make a donation either to the relief effort for Nepal or for the Woodland Trust which is our nominated charity for 2015.
Allan Williams organised Tuesday’s Sprint Race in Tamworth:
For the adults Stodge took pride of place with a win on the Green course while Matt Mardling also won on the Blue. Alfie won the Orange and Adam Mardling won the Yellow. To top off the Mardling success story Oscar won the White course. There were also numerours top three and top ten placings so a good day all round.
Tuesday training this week is again in Stafford Town Centre.
If you want to enter the British Sprints and/ or Middles entries close at midnight tonight.
P.S. Great party last night, big thanks to Mary and Neil for organising.
“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!”
