Shugborough results


Well done Sally for organising her first event and coping with the problems the weather and equipment threw at her with a smile, Ian for planning some fun courses on a fun little area, Andy Hemsted for controlling and all the helpers for helping, especially Tom for running download for the first time despite the generator issues (sorry you all had to walk to the ticket office to download) and the car park team for getting the cars in and out of the field.
I’m told the sun was shining in the forest!!
