Event Report

Keith Parkes' Petts Wood Street O proved a nice conundrum, especially for those in the middle of the results. It was important to make the right selections since +/- 10 points made quite a difference. Certainly I was seduced by the 10 pointers early on; poor value compared with the 30s I should have reached! Thanks Keith and Neil for hosting this one.

It's the first KNC event in Sittingbourne next week, planned by David & Graham Thomas - please let them know if you plan to come. Hope to see you there.
