DVO Club Championships 2005
I couldn't believe how lucky we were with the weather, as on Thursday I'd been thinking that winter had arrived and that armbands might be compulsory for the event by Saturday. Everyone who expressed an opinion before starting said that the handicapping was too harsh, which I think meant it was probably even-handed. In the end, many people beat my estimated time for them, so perhaps my efforts really weren't that accurate, but no-one complained about finishing before noon.
The finish was fairly chaotic, and I apologise for this - many thanks to Dave Skidmore for bailing me out when the main deluge of finishers arrived just before noon. I was forced to estimate one or two finish times, and so a few people who finished around 11:57 could have times out by up to half a minute; the championships had been decided by this point so I hope this doesn't cause too much upset.
Many thanks for all the positive comments on the day and since - they make it all worthwhile!
