Gravesend - Race Report courtesy Brendon Howe
Dave Cave did a great job laying out controls in difficult circumstances and four crazy souls braved the elements (Andrew, Sam, Jerry, myself), with Anthony and Nick B arriving only in time for the pub.
Unfortunately, the all important maps did not arrive (apparently stuck on Bluebell Hill with Neil S). Luckily, Dave managed to fashion an impromptu competition using the two organiser's maps he did have, so it was Jerry and I vs Sam and Andrew. After 30 mins or so of sliding and splashing about Jerry and I managed to pip the other team to the post by snaffling the all important CP75 before heading to the finish.
Since the pub had called to say it was shutting early, we took 'pot luck' at the Six Bells. Despite there being no food, the barman managed to rustle up a free tray of sandwiches left over from the Ladies Darts Team that didn't show.
Fun was had by all!
