Event Report

Thanks for coming to the Adlington countryside score. The passing showers just about managed to hold off for the event but created humid conditions for what proved to be a runners course. The Miner's Arms were good hosts again under their new management and served up a tasty pint of Bollington Long Hop. No-one made any mistakes so thanks to the thorough checking and to the well-established MDOC database of questions and answers! Hazel we moved you to the 90 minute course because you scored more points per minute that way. Any queries about the results please get in touch.

Lost property
