In the words of the organiser if Pomeroy was a mint it would have been EXTRA STRONG“! Many thanks to all who travelled and took part, especially those who travelled from down south and from Scotland – good to see former North-Westie Peter O’Hara contending in the very competitive M45 class.

Thanks to Anthony and Steven for courses which squeezed a lot of challenge into a small area, the club volunteers who kept everything on track and to Ursula and the junior kitchen for shelter and sustenance on a difficult day.
