No race report available however a small but quality field battled it out on the tough Lookout Hill course. I am pleased to see that a long list of marshals was on hand to help Race Director Ian Downing. Thanks to them for volunteering at short notice. Marshals on the day were Fiona Mavris, Jeff Culnane, Elton Ivers, Brad White, and Robert Langridge.

Directing This Month? Please notify James Jordan (handicapper@actvets.cc) if you are unable to meet your obligations or provide a substitute director in your absence. If you are unable to direct for any reason please try to make alternate arrangements by swapping with other allocated Directors. If you cannot make a swap please give us at least a weeks notice so we can call for a replacement in a timely fashion.

See website for list of future events and allocated race directors. http://rms.actvets.cc/
