Given recent deluges, it was little surprise to find the Trog this year even damper under foot than is usual; throw in a fierce head wind on the return slog over Low Brown Knoll and Sheep Stones Edge, and it's fair to say our gallant Carshare Leaguers had to work hard for their points today. Tom B was a close second (and first MV40), having led the eventual winner off Sheep Stones trig, and takes pole position in this year's League. Nicky took the honours for the women, second only to Helen Fines, with Heather a close third.
Your correspondent knew he had his work cut out to defend the title of first honorary woman, and singularly failed so to do, but was nonetheless pleased to claim the rare scalps of a number of fellow DP'ers, regardless of the various injuries and afflictions they may have been sporting. Together with Paul F, Jim P and Tim R, he also had the pleasure of bagging the team prize for this particular fixture, whilst Paul was well chuffed to secure his first prize as an MV40 as third counter in the victorious DP mixed vets team (with Tom and Nicky). Another good run from Dave Lund also, whilst Carshare finally took delivery of the Arthur Eaton Retirement Salver - was that a tear I saw in your eye, Carshare?
Next up is the Stan Bradshaw Pendle Round on Saturday 8th March, which is pre-entry only, so time to get your entry sent off if you've not done so already.
