We've been so lucky with the weather this series and tonight was no exception, along with amazing views of the Coniston Fells from the parking field ! It was a bit tough out there but we hope you all enjoyed your courses.
As always, thanks to several people for helping put the event on tonight - Pete for planning, Jean for safety advising and first aid, Rach as Series Co-ordinator, Meg for manning the start, the control collectors - Steve, Jean, Cliff and Isobel and the SI team of Chris, Andy & Ali.
