STAG Dark Park Race 1 - Thursday 2nd October 2014 - Victoria Park

Thanks for attending & my thanks to Gerry, Robert, John & Arnis for assisting.

In future please DO NOT PRE-ENTER if you are in any doubt about attending. Some form of EON will be available but we need to cut down on the amount of wasted maps as it was 3 maps per person on the Long Course & 4 folk didn’t turn up & no emails to explain why.

Simple results in order below.
