Instructors course

4 of our club members took part in an Instructors course run by the IOA at the RSC and the nearby Kilbarry Amenity park. These are some pictures of the the training sessions.
Another course will be run at the RSC on September 10th and 17th. Anybody interested please contact me for more details.
Members of Oceanic Manoeuvres in Tramore also took part and completed a training session  in rather sunnier weather.

JFK results

 Results for today's event at Kennedy park are posted. Well done to all the first timers, the old timers and all the rest. Thanks to Jana and Angela for their help on registration and download.
Apologies to anyone who was put out by control 212 on the end of a thicket near a pond, it was put out by 50 metres. As it did not affect punters too much, we have left it in the results.
Thank you to the Arboretum for pulling my car out of the mud on Saturday and for hosting us.
