Men's Pairs Saturday 24th February 2018
I have to apologise in respect of this event to all the participants on behalf of the SBU. First of all we had an inadequate movement but too late to change as it would have, I understand, taken 30mins + to alter everything.

It is hoped that the correct scores can be calculated and any pair with scorecards is invited...

I did not make Aviemore but did manage Peebles in December though I was worried if I could cope with the long hours as I was told it was a 16-week recovery period. I coped alright but...
