SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Compass Sport Cup correction to team scores

I am indebted to Roger Jackson of WCOC for double-checking my calculations, which had to be done manually after a software problem yesterday. All results are confirmed except that I had credited MDOC with an extra score, so their total reduces and LOC move into 2nd place. Please look over the Club Results and Individual Results.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Farleton Knott CSC/CST start list

A start list for Sunday's event has now been published. Please note that there are many entries which have important details missing. Club captains have been asked to supply these, but if you spot any mistakes or missing details please email . This does not extend to changes in start times since the start list is very full and adequate separation between club members has been difficult to achieve.

Club entries for the Compass Sport Cup and Trophy matches for this event on 15th March should be in to Sarah Watkins by Friday 6th March.
