A very wet day on Saturday 6th Feb...

Note from Stephen & Ross Pyper to David Gibson & Organising Club...

Please pass on to the Committee & Club a huge thanks to all involved for hosting such a superb event under what can best be described as extreme conditions.
John & Mat got the sections just right for the clubman grade and from what i heard from other competitors for all other grades.
The observers all deserve a medal -  many thanks to each of them for braving the weather & making it all possible. I don't think I have ever seen the mountain so wet.
