Thanks to David Blair for planning and organising an excellent event using both sides ofor Ballykelly forest. We had a good number of club members as well as visitors from LVO and Scotland and some club members from the past.
Afterwards members enjoyed a meal at the Drummond where we celebrated Noel Bogle’s 80th and we then held our AGM.
The NWOC Handicap Championships took place at Carnfunnock Country Park near Larne on the 18th November. We used the last of the LVO Autumn Series Events so no one had to miss out through planning or controlling. I think everyone there would agree it was a really nice parkland area – with many unusual features such as the giant model train set which I briefly got trapped in! The crisp clear weather afforded beautiful views over the North Channel. Getting to visit and enjoy places like this is one of the great boons of our sport.
Many thanks to LVO for a very enjoyable (and demanding) event. I am sure I entered Green but there were times on the long legs and steep climbs it felt quite blue!
Finally thanks to our Handicapper David who crunched the numbers with total impartiality!
