Ray Collins (100 points, Green Men)
Claire Bushnell (99 points, Green Women)

Special mention should also go to Jonathan Howell who scored 98 points on the Green Men but can’t be counted in the final score as we had 2 people ahead of him on the same course.
Total score was 1272, just 2 points ahead of POTOC, and enough to take the win, with Wrekin in 3rd place on 1256 points.
Full results are currently available at www.cix.co.uk/~neper/csc2017/index.htm
The final will be in Devon on Virtuous Lady, Yelverton, on Sunday, 22 October. Put the date in your diaries now, and hopefully with our “finishers” to come off the bench (Iain Stamp, Mike Barnby, Em Garside, Ian Hughes, Judith Hughes, Matt Hartland, Gemma Cairns-Smith and more!) we can do ourselves proud 🙂
