Hero of the hour!

He won’t thank me for telling you this (he’s very quiet and self-effacing) but we have a hero in our midst. He’s been regularly volunteering to get controls in after events for years and years but looks like he’s now started collecting competitors instead…..!

“Can you relay a thank you to Bob Daly who came upon me injured in the forest today and reported this to the controller? He then came back up to help carry me to a waiting car. I have a spiral fracture of the fibula in my right leg and a stitched right knee – the result of 2 separate mishaps! Please pass on my heartfelt thanks – I was so glad to see him in the forest! Regards Marjory Craig”
