Results in listings to been adjusted for exact start times

Walkers and 7am starters are given same position when finishing in a group, up to 5 seconds separating dibbing at the finish. Relay and 8am starters are regarded as racing, so first to dunk at the end gets the position. A facility to reverse these defaults is being devised. Relay can't really be regarded as joint winners, but 8am could run as a pair, or 7am could be racing to the bitter end (especially the husband and wife pairs?)     Any comment?

10-completions Award

In line with a tradition in LDWA events, an award has been introduced for completing the event 10 times. Awards have been made to Roy Varo, Henry Marston, Dave Carratt, Kerry Booth, Mick Cochrane, George Kay, Terry Griffiths, Andrew West, Chris Sanders, David Fox, Mick Marsters, Brian Harney, Ian O'Mara and Tom Hughes. The awards are based on my records; please let me know if there is an error (contact information below). Names get spelled differently in different years (Steve or Stephen), ladies marry, and certain names have been duplicated, easy when there were two Nigel Robinsons in one year, more difficult when there were John Whites in different years, from different clubs (which is not decisive) but different ages (which is).

Additional awards were made this year to Bob Berzins, Peter Simpson and Percy Wellor
