Chairman’s Chat – 27th December 2017

I hope you all had a great Christmas and Boxing Day. Many WSX members spent the latter at the traditional Boxing Day Canter in Ringwood Forest North. The weather was kind – just starting to rain as we drove away. Pity the poor control-collectors, though! It was a great, fun event as usual – and, for me, it was a success as I managed to find both Father Christmas and the Elves! Sadly, I didn’t get the third bonus points from the decorated tree, but it was a whole lot better than last year when I didn’t get any bonuses!

The best WSX results were James (10th), Roger (14th) and Graham (15th) and special mention must be made of Arthur Brooke who got a magnificent 480 points, beating his dad! So well done all.

So now 2018 is nearly upon us, it’s time to start putting some dates in your diary. There’s the Sarum event on New Year’s Day – see details here.

Then, on January 7th, SOC are having an event at Fritham and Bentley – it’s not on fabian4 yet, but details can be found here.

This is quickly followed by our Night League event in Poole Town. All details on our website.
