Mindful next Easter's international festival is being held one of the less populated regions, the organisers are trying to address possible volunteer shortages in advance and hoping to hear from anyone who could lend their help during any of the four event days. Some QO members helped last time.
The club has five new middle distance champions, after some thrilling races round the awesome dune system on the north Devon coast on Sunday. Congratulations to Annabelle Lewis, Jacob Shirvington, Paul Chavasse, Steve Robertson and Rosie Wych.
Fitting finale to season
A fabulous day was had up on the Mendips in very fine weather. Winscombe's busy cricket/sports ground provided a vibrant base, with cake and clothes stalls and a BBQ. Nice luxuries to help the 20 QO's recover from physical courses and a long walk to the start/finish.
