2nd Place for DMUARS in RSGB 80m CC 2011

The results of the RSGB 80m Club Championship 2011 have been published.

Congratulation to Bristol GC for maintaining their strong lead throughout the Championship. But the great news, as far as I’m concerned, is that De Montfort University ARS managed to fight off a very strong challenge from Norfolk ARC to finish in second place this year.

It’s now time to concentrate on the RSGB 80m Club Sprints for 2011.
