CompassSport Cup Final - SYO finish a credible 3rd place, just 4 points behind 2nd place. A great result considering we had 7 or 8 of our best runners unavailable on the day. Apart from our one course winner - well done Pippa Dakin on Junior Women - and a good 2nd from Pete Gorvett, notable performances, i.e. those who ran better than Tim had expected, were Michael Adams 3rd on Short Brown and Dominic Dakin 3rd on Orange Men.
Congratulations also to Louise Adams for winning the Golden Boot award for the fastest woman on the run-in.
It was great to see our new juniors making the trip all the way to the Lakes to compete in their first really big competition. Well done to Alex and Ryan Elliot, Callum Veitch, Imogen Pieters, Rachel Turner, Max and Seb Mobus. Looking good for the future was the performance of those who were competing against much older children: in particular Alex, Imogen and Ryan, who were all not far from being among the SYO counters.
And a big well done and thanks to those of you who made up our top 25 scorers - Pippa, Pete Gorvett, Michael, Charlie, Nick B, Mark C, Dom, Kim, Alastair, Euan, Nick L, Nic B, Hilary, Sheila, Colin, Brian, Louise, Martin, Jaimie, Pete T, John, Richard, Jim and Clive .
Tim Tett has a prize for all the scorers - control card holders. They are a little small so if you don't want yours let him know as our juniors can make good use of them.
