The frustrating midweek journey to Croydon did not overly-enthuse the K&P vets,though those 11 who did make it made the most of it.
Nicky Atkins could muster just 4 and,though she is out of sorts currently,she led the way tackling 4 events. Joan Trimble won her M50 200 in 31.3,her best to date this summer,and Susanne Dietrich & Julie Garner ran determinedly.
Mike May also led from the front,winning his 200 in 27.2,his best of 2007,whilst Geoff van Klaveren took the M35 Javelin(33.91),Draco Mkpa the M35 200(24.5) & John Simmons the M50 Triple Jump(9.45). Chuck Isetts ran Terry Bissett to 6/100ths with 2nd in the M60 200(28.2) & Graham Huntley threw appropriately and officiated for us with Geoff Reed,who made a special trip just for that purpose from work.Both Chuck & John shortly move up a group,so we are all ageing fast!!!!
Teamwise,the women were 4th but retain 2nd overall at the halfway stage on points,whilst the men were 4th and stay 3rd. Results are on the Noticeboard at Kingsmeadow, or from your Team manager.
