The first rally and scurry to be held at the Club’s field was well attended by both competitors and spectators and we trust you all enjoyed the event.  The results were as follows but, unfortunately are not the same as the results given on the day…… my sole brain cell was obviously in Sunday mode and I scored the rally as a scurry – my sincere apologies to all concerned – if anyone feels strongly that they didn’t get the rosette they so justly deserved then please let me know and I will sort it out.
