Moore Series
I guess if anyone should write up the results of the Geoff Moore 3000m track series, it should be me. The presentations were made on Thursday night to a thankful Paul Considine, who held off injuries just long enough to guarantee the win, before he missed the last few races. At the other extreme, Kathy Sims, whose run in the last qualifier of the series secured her win.
No prize for places, but speedy geese were second and third, with yours truly upsetting Colin Farlow.

  2. Great to see Kathy winning the most prestigious track series of all!

    Thanks for the reminder about 'Vets track already'. I was just starting to get into the swing of things.
