They’re all to be found at “Resources>OneDrive Public” and then at: “NISeries” The official version of the table is on its way for publication on the NIOA web site but you’ll find a copy here. The next event is the fourth after which discards come into play. “Colour Standards” The revised list after Florencecourt shows quite a few folk consolidating their colour standard by being able to discard last year’s distant memories. “hCOW>hCOW2022” The colour event series tables include the Florencecourt results in Event6 and Read More …

Crawfordsburn WEE Wednesday 2th May

As an experiment, we are leaving online entries open until the night of the event. So, if you would like a run *please* enter now at https://www.sientries.co.uk/event.php?elid=Y&event_id=9905. It makes life an awful lot simpler for the Organiser to just hand out a dibber, rather than gather up all the safety and contact information and laboriously enter it onto the computer. Much faster for those who are pre-entered and just collecting a dibber too. If you are pre-entered and have your own dibber, just go straight to the Start in front of the Woodlands cafΓ©. Other details see https://lvo.org.uk/allfixtures/wee4-belfast-park-tbc/ See you Read More …
