I've taken a few liberties by combining Mini & Maxi scores where both classes were run and made 'Zero' any negative scores.
Congratulations to Judith Wood (our club Chair) on MAXI for pipping the entire Ellis family into runer-up positions.
On MINI, father and son Frank and Darren (M10) Tweed finished ahead of Steve Beresford. But, had I not uplifted him to the Maxi rankings, Simon Sarginson would have carried away the Mini trophy. 
Well done all. 

The overall turnout was a bit disappointing at an average 21.5 competitive units per week.  However this compares to just 4 entries on the very first, very wet, June Score at Towneley Park in 2012.  Some progress.  Football fever or the hot weather with a lack of refreshing CO2 drinks may have reduced numbers.  Who can tell?

If anyone has any feedback or opinions on how we might change (improve?) the format please do let me know.  Adjustments can be made next year.

Now is the season for multi-day events at home or abroad!  Happy orienteering.  Go to it!
