A dry but windy day saw some great performances from the Clubs youngsters who fought for every point, but they came up short against a very strong Dacorum Team. Dacorum won with 735 points from Stevenage on 590, Bedford 482, Beds Lions 274 and Peterborough 169. With one team dropping out the Club’s officials and volunteers were kept busy with 6 events to Field Judge plus an additional 2 with Bedford at the beginning of the day. We also provided 4 Track judges and a Timekeeper. Luckily, we had brought extra Officials along to run Bedford’s Photo Finish system which wasn’t working so they all kindly transferred to Field and Track judging and set up EDM on long throws making everyone’s life easier!
