A couple have dropped out and some still haven't sent payment in.
Confirmed=25 (i.e. consent forms and payment received).
10 in 8-12yrs and 15 in 13-16yrs.
Should be a brilliant day for all.

I would just like to thank everyone who was involved in this event, it was absolutely fantastic.

Our two children, thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and have learnt a lot. A big thank you goes to Jonathan and David Manning.

You couldn't have had better weather conditions, and the venue was brilliant.

Thank you so much

Best time of the day was 2min 47sec by a lad in the 8-12year old section.

Best moment of the day was when Greenwood tried the course in Blackjack and could only manage 3mins 20secs

Photos of the day

Maybe that lad should consider the round Anglesea challenge
