Results

Report

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 .
