Thank you to everyone who came to our first Park-O of the 2021-2022 school year. The weather was baking unlike last time we were at Milton CP! Apologies to those affected later on by control 214 (no. 13 on the Long course) being stolen, we have made that leg optional. The Long course was particularly challenging today; Caroline did a great job at finding new places in an area a lot of us know so well.
This was our first Park-O since COVID where we had entry on the day which was popular and seemed to work well. Having said that, thank you to all the entrants who pre-entered - this makes our lives easier and is less error-prone. We look forward to seeing you at Lammas Land next month.
