Recap/Results

Here are the results!

THANKS to everyone who came out on Saturday. It looks like this might be one of the last sanctioned races in a while.

It was nice to be back on the old course!  the "A" race did 8 laps and the "B" race did 6 laps.
The weather was Spring-like with a bit of sleeting rain at the beginning and tapering off as the race progressed. Winds were 8-10mph from the SE.
