Thanks to Peter and the Bury MFC team for running a great comp.
Clear blue skies all day, with a stiff breeze that was pretty much down the runway.


A thoroughly enjoyable day.

Thanks guys!


Have attached the results below as well as the judging analysis for those who are interested.  Note there is no analysis for Clubman.  Unfortunately, I've not been able to get the output that shows how these points translate into League Table points as there seems to be some corruption in the file.  Probably finger trouble by me!


I have sent Ashley a short write up and photos that will appear on the Forum Photo Gallery in due course.

Hi Guys, Ashley has posted up the report and photos of the comp on the Photo Gallery here.  Whilst he has a couple of minor tweaks still to make, he's really busy at the moment preparing for the Euro Champs but the entry is fine as it is.  Enjoy re-living the day!
