Not content with scoring a hit by single-handedly putting on the highly successful Club Handicap last Saturday, our Chairman Julian Lailey ventured to Norfolk on Sunday to take 1st place in M65L in the Midlands Championships, and thereby score maximum points in the UK Masters Cup. Our picture shows Julian storming into the finish, over three minutes clear of his nearest rival.

Many many thanks are due to Julian Lailey for creating the map of this lovely new area, planning the course and both placing and collecting controls. Also to Dick Collins for looking after the handicapping. At least Dick managed to run as well for the first time in 32 years! Pictured is the winner (before applying handicaps) Mark Saunders. Once handicaps were applied the new Handicap Champion was up and coming youngster Laurence Johnson, 2nd Miriam Rosen and 3rd Mike Hayward. More photos in the gallery. Results are here.
