Lunan Grassroots event

13th April 2003

A chilly wind greeted the 16 competitors at Lunan event on Sunday, April 13th, but at least we were spared the dreaded sleet storm of a few years ago!

This year we decided to make it more of an educational experience, and so drivers drove the 4 hazards twice. That way, if they made a complete mess of it the first time, they had about 40 minutes to figure out what had gone wrong, and then set out again.

Almost everyone had faster times their second trip through the hazards, even if they went the same route. For scoring, we took the best time for each hazard.

The cones course proved challenging, and only David Brown drove a double clear in his nippy little 2 wheeler.

Thanks must go to Joyce Simpson (dressage judge) and Ian Thornton-Kemsley (cones judge) for their excellent service.
