Scatter Results

Five crews tactled the first navigational scatter on Friday 2nd December. Four of the crews had novice navigators and hopefully this will encourage some more club members to come out for the next one which will be in the early part of 2012. Thanks to Jason Price and Gareth Andrews for organising the event. A lot of effort goes into putting on event like this so we need as many club members who can, to participate to support and encourage organisors.
