Results from todays event are HERE
It was good to see a healthy turnout at our December event on the Vertish Hill, not quite as high as recent local events but at this time of year that’s probably to be expected. Thanks to all who came along and I hope you enjoyed it, the weather was certainly kinder than last year.
This was my first attempt at planning and I really enjoyed the experience, possibly helped by being on an area I knew well from my days attempting to play golf and spraying balls all around the course, however I still managed to find some spots I’d never been before. It was certainly made more enjoyable by all the help and advice I received from Lindsey throughout the process for which I am very grateful. As well as mentoring me Lindsey also acted as controller, helped put out controls and did the registration and results, Rob helped set up beforehand and also got controls in along with John, Paul, Robin, James and Sam. Many thanks to you all.
The yellow course had given me problems with the lack of a path network but both Ellie and Seb Darlow seemed to make light work of it with Ellie romping round in first place with an impressive time of 12:10. I was spoilt for choice when making up the Score course and it was good to see a wide variety of routes taken with the first four all starting with a different control. John Tullie emerged a clear winner being the only person to get all the controls with nearly five minutes to spare.
Finally, thanks to Hawick Golf Club for closing off their course for our use and putting on an excellent meal for our Christmas dinner.
