Our Latest Saturday Series event at Altyre South once again ran to form in that we had lovely sunny weather. It may not have been very warm but it was very pleasant in the sunshine. All went smoothly on the day, thanks to David's update of the map, Rob's planning and Ken's organisation, with help from Sara. It didn't go so smoothly when it came to setting up Routegadget but a version has been created. You can find the results and Routegadget in the usual place on our website
. So far 7 have uploaded their results on the Light Green course and 1 has uploaded his yellow course. Thanks Harry!
