The Bear” – may 2006

 

Issue 4/06

 

1 TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2006

Those attending will surely confirm that this year’s two day event was very well staged by Leamington C & A C, and thanks are extended to them.

We didn’t see much sun, but generally we escaped the rain and there was plenty of good competition especially amongst the young athletes.  Although Leicestershire numbers were down the virtues of joint competition again were much in evidence.

To those Senior competitors NOT at Leamington …..why?  You would have enhanced the meeting further.
