DNC Scolty – 8th Feb 2017 – Results

A slightly damp night, but the drizzle was light and didn’t realy penetrate the trees too badly.  The forest was very wet underfoot, however – I’ve never seen the marshes so wet.  Fortunately, the event was well over before a sharp snowstorm blew through about 9.45pm!  The courses were very nice – thanks to MurrayContinue reading “DNC Scolty – 8th Feb 2017 – Results”

Balmedie DNC 15 Jan 2014 – Results
