Some new recruits to the league, and a particularly strong showing from the women and over 65s respectively (welcome Brother Lockwood), with some canny entries on the short and medium courses securing particularly high scores ... not least Ms Bryan-Jones whose orienteering class clearly shone through once again.  Indeed, there must be something in the air - independence perhaps? - with (methinks) Father Bryan-Jones winning outright on the Short Course, and our other double-barreled would-be Scotsman (Rhys F-R) securing second on the Classic Course this year. 

In the absence of a determination from the Cat (who may or may not have been a DNF on the Classic Course) as to the Team Prize winners, this particular award must perforce be held in abeyance.  More disappointing still, with the enforced absence of Barber Surgeon Caddick through injury, we will for the second year running not have a woman completing the requisite five qualifying races for the league - leaving your absentee correspondent with a difficult decision to make as to this year's first honorary woman.

We all have our crosses to bear, I guess, chief amongst which for your correspondent this weekend being the call away to higher duties, delivering precious cargo to Glasgow School of Art, such that I could not on this occasion join in the fun.

Last up then, as previously trailed, is The Screes, Nether Wasdale, featuring the first Carshare League Awayday Weekend.  All welcome - kids included - and the opportunity to give our (mostly) youngers and betters a good cheer at the FRA Relays on the Sunday morning.  Do let me know by email if you plan to come along.

With a Welsh first name, and Scottish-English surname, no wonder the poor boy's confusion has driven him to an excessive drinking habit ... have you heard the one about the multi-cultural fellrunner who went into a pub?
