Results of Saturdays meeting are here.
A great all round team performance.
We finished 4th on the day and 5th overall which will mean that unfortunately next year we will be back to Division 4.
Lets hope that next year we can get more jumpers, pole vaulters, hurdlers and steeplechasers, as that will make things much easier for us.
There are very many great action photos on the Club website (flickr) taken by Marc Kirsten. Thanks Marc.
There were new Club records , Personal Bests and Season Bests set at the meeting.

An extra special thanks to Derek and Ian for giving the water jump a major clean up on Thursday, welly boots and all. It hadn’t been used for a few years and was in a bit of a state.
