Park league final results

Hope you all enjoyed Cosmeston, both the courses and the hot dogs. 

Well done to our handicap league winners Duncan Innes on the long and John Mills on the Middle.  Also a big well done to all the improving juniors on the Novice and Middle courses. 
This is my last year organising and planning most of the park series, so if anyone wants to volunteer for next year, shout.

Final park series league table can be found here.

Park League after 4 Races

Thanks to everyone for turning up at Bute Park. Good to see so many of you there.  After nearly three years of these races I got my first run.  Thanks to Mark Saunders for planning and Alice for helping and collecting controls. 
I have finally got round to producing the league positions after 4 races (best 4 results to count). The top half of each league is shown on attached tables.  John Mills looks to have got he middle league just about sewn up, but it is very close behind with a number of still fighting it out for the other podium position.
The long league is much more wide open at the moment. 
See you all at Llandaff Fields on 4 July. Anthony Raven has planned some great courses and we will try not to run out of middle maps. 
Why not bring along a friend.
