    Detailed instructions about how to run an average lap race.

    Richard Dee has produced detailed instructions for Officers of the day about how to run an average lap race. They need a little more preparation and thought than pursuit racing to run them well so read up, get your brain working and come prepared. A link to the instructions can be found here.

  • Fated to be Gated

    Fated to be Gated

    Another Saturday of personal dramas and attributations. Wind, pleasant in a masochistic sort of way. Unusually, MSC was unpredictably shifty with a general trend of reversing circular motions. Too much all at once, too little when wanted now.....
