Congratulations to River Edis-Smith (M20) and Dom Wathey (M14) who were 1st and 2nd in the Junior Elite at last weekend's British Trail-O Championships in Scarborough, and to John Kewley (JK) who was 3rd in the Senior Elite.
Dom had the best Time Control score (by some margin) across the whole of the Elite field, and had it not been for one control being voided he would have beaten River.

Some 75 people attended the Activity Day at South Park, Macclesfield today.
Courses were planned by Ben and Alain Kyd, and several club members were on hand to provide advice to newcomers (of which there were many) as well as do all the normal jobs, and on this occasion hanging results on a washing line, turning back the clock almost 20 years!
Congratulations to Ben Kyd (M16) who has been invited to join the North West Junior Squad following the recent 'NWJS newbie day'. He joins fellow MDOC junior, Dom Wathey (M14), who has been a member of the Squad since last year.
