The Battle of the C Course LAMM 2012 and Brain Bending at WTOC 2012

Have a quick look at the top few teams on this year’s LAMM C course and see how many GRAMP (and MAROC) names you can spot. We have Ian Hamilton+ Alec Erskine in 8th, Alistair + Rosalyn Marshall in 6th, Gordon Urquart + Douglas Cowan in 5th and right at the top of the list are Tim + Jack Gomersall winning by a comfortable 12 minute margin – congratulations lads! (Is the Tom Gomersall on the A course their cousin I wonder?) Also well done to Dave + Liz Kirk for wading in at the relatively deep end on the C course for their first LAMM and surviving and also Gillian Clunas + Elaine Stewart on coming 1st Female Vet, 7th Vets overall and 41st overall on Gillian’s first LAMM too.

Speaking of the A course, Gareth Yardley and partner Dave Thompson also did extremely well coming in as 2nd Vets and 7th overall.  Gareth is even pictured on the LAMM website in a photo entitled “The pointless task of trying to get midges out of your tea” but if you look very carefully, the midge in question appears to be the size of a small dog!!?

Last – well actually first Vets – but not least are Dave + Sonia Armitage who came 4th on the D course and look well pleased with their hard-earned prizes (photo by John Brooke).

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, other GRAMPs were helping out at WTOC 2012 and some were also bending their brains instead of their legs in the Public Class.

Foss (current BOF ranking 2232) warmed up with some TempO on Wednesday before having a stormer on Day 1 at Tentsmuir coming 7th overall beating both Nick Barrable (44)  and Sarah-Jane Gaffney (714). Now there’s a result you wouldn’t predict and Foss must be dead chuffed!

The international field of competitors appreciated the warm Scottish hospitality even if the weather was dreich – maybe Neil will explain what the joke was about in the next Telegramp?

If you’ve time on your hands at the end of the month, Latvia is the next stop on the international Trail O scene. The Kapa 12 bulletin will tell you more.
