Guid Nychburris Autotest Results June 10th 2012

SACC  Autotest Challenge 2012

Just a quick ‘thank you’ to all members and friends that assisted in the successful running of this exciting event.

I’m sure the competitors were all suffering aches and pains the following day, after covering 16 tests, and even more so if they had competed over the two days. I know a few marshals with sore legs having stood all day. (Except for some who were laying about on Loungers !)

As organisers it was a bit disappointing to have so few representatives from outwith the club. However I think our members can be proud of the level of competition we provided. Good to see the young bloods giving it a good try. And the ladies were well represented.

The comments from competitors were mostly positive with only minor adjustments to the diagrams being the most obvious request. One of the visitors has even asked for a membership form. It ‘s in the post Grainger!.

Not wanting to single anyone out but a big ‘thank you’ to Thelma for producing results on our stone age laptop. I  promise to ask for a new one at the next committee meeting.
