Forvie 19/10/14 – Race the Castles, SHI Relays and Northern Lights

Race the Castles and SHI Relays Full results can be found on the RtC website.
Congrats to Carolyn McLeod on second in W40 (Queen of the Castle-in-waiting?) and to our Organiser Jayne MacGregor and Planner Ian Searle for all their hard work at Forvie. I’m told that you can barely see the run-in track a couple of weeks later let alone any evidence out in the dunes that so many people enjoyed such a great day.

Apologies for the abortive attempt to hold the Northern Lights prizegiving on the day armed with an incomplete set of results. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but at the time we thought the Juniors would be keen to know who’d won and we didn’t want to disappoint those who’d stayed on – thanks for your patience. Some of the trophies are on their way south to the upcoming ScotJOS weekend for onpass to the southern area clubs.
