President Ian Miller writes:
It was the second largest WHO Summer Series ever with 200 doing the score course and 11 the mini. Matt Hackett was the organiser and Steve Dunlop was the setter. The first participant arrived at 3:50pm and we had everyone back just after 7:30pm so were able to collect controls and pack up by 8:30pm.
It takes a number of people to look after the registration, the computer, answer queries and explain the event to newcomers. The event ran very smoothly and there were numerous compliments about the courses.
A special thank you to Tim Perry who delivered and helped set up the computer before racing off to the hospital to meet his newest grandchild born yesterday afternoon.
A very successful event. Thank you. Ian
