A huge “thank you” to all 28 CLYDE runners who helped the club achieve its best ever result of runners up in this year’s Compass Sport Trophy Final held at Tankersley near Sheffield on Sunday 16th October 2016. We scored an outstanding 1250 points, only 14 points behind worthy winners INT (1264 points) and just 3 points ahead of third placed EPOC (1247 points). Particular mention should go to Emma Wilson and Lindsay Robertson, who scored a maximum 198 points on Junior Women, Ali McLeod who scored 99 points on Brown despite a misplaced control, Thomas Wilson and Dave Robertson who scored a near-perfect 197 out of a possible 199 points on Short Brown, and Alice Wilson, who didn’t panic and still scored 98 points on Orange Women despite missing her start time and being held at the start for 7 or 8 minutes before being allowed to go. Special thanks to Club Captain Steve Wilson for coordinating the team and, together with Dave Robertson, for driving the CLYDE minibus all the way there and back. A huge thanks too to Ruth and Kenneth Wilson for hosting 18 members of the team on Saturday night, and for providing them with more dinner and breakfast than even they could eat!
