Explanation of Event levels
Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Activities are non competitive events used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.
A very successful EckO event. Almost seventy folk took part, either as competitors or as accompanying parents and the feedback has been great.
A big thank you to Ross Lilley who organised and planned the event and provided, along with Jan Kersel, pre-event coaching.
Apologies for the late appearance of Sunday's results. The large turnout on the day caught us by surprise and forced us to use some "dibbers" more than once, which caused difficulty in processing the downloads. If you spot any errors, let us know via .
