Irish Champs Relays

Hi everyone, Olivia and I are pulling together the IOC relay teams. This is not easy with very complicated sums to be done for the Handicap classes. The good thing is, there are no Team Trials and you can take it as seriously, or not, as you wish. If you’d like a run, please let me (Susan) or Olivia know.
