Inlands reports

Inlands reports

I have uploaded the reports and results from Hunts and Whitefriars. The travellers Series is up to date with just Broxbourne and the Rum and Mice Pies to go. Paul still leads from Simon, Penny and Caroline, but with Clive, John and Robbie all still needing 3 races to qualify it could be all change at the end! Next event is Broxbourne SC on the 24th October. If you have not visited Broxbourne before is a great lake in the Lee Valley park, just off junction 25 of the M25 so very easy to get to. Hope to see you all there.
