We had a difficult race this weekend, less than 30% home at clock checking.

I did ok compared to most members having 12 from 21 home, had 3 since but none today so 6 down and not really expecting them.

How were returns for other site members on what seemed to be a tricky day ?

we got 2/4 today about 20% returns in our club took 4 hours 7 mins to do 110 mile derby into the west country libbed at 12.15 only 8 members clocked i think 13/14 members sent was expecting a holdover as our organisation covers Cheltenham down to Dorchester we had heavy down pours through the afternoon and further south was worse the shorter flyers would have faired a bit better maybe ...hope yer birds work back lads
