Harlow Grading - 17th June

By and large an excellent day for us. Being Father's Day there were predictably reduced numbers but with 13 competing on the day we achieved 4 winners, 4 runners-up and a 3rd place as well as a couple of near misses. Also no less than 14 personal best scores were beaten on the day. More details on our website here.
