Performance Tables Updated

The NISeries tables and the Colour Standard table have been updated with the results of the Gortin Glen event last Saturday – thanks FermO (and controller Billy Reed).  They can be found at “Resources>LVO Public Folders>NI Series (or) Colour Standards”.  In the NISeries tables the absence of a club against a name indicates a non-NIOA member (thus scoring no points).  In the Colour Standards table a yellow highlight indicates a 2017 un-renewed member; if they fail to join for 2018 their history will be dropped at the end of the year.
