Thanks go to them both for all the hard work they have put into keeping the 10’s running so smoothly (and supplying the tea at every event) For 2009 we are to have the same volunteer basis on the website. Just let Martin Pigott know what date you would like to time keep & marshall. William to arrange the dates for 2009. Also we will buy a new set of stop watches so we can have 2 sets of clock / sign / signing on forms etc It will be easier to pass onto the next time keepers if we had extra equipment.
