Used for the first time in 2008, Spur Chase Woods was the venue for the 7th Poacher of 2010. Planner Brian Slater chose a different start area incorporating bits of wood not previously used; some still containing remnants of RAF Kirmington's activities during WWII (The RAF station was the predecessor of Humberside Airport). Brian even had controls on some of these features - if you had time to inspect them! Two separate finishes were used - probably a first for the Poacher, although some competitors have often tried to finish in a different place! The Long Course provided Junior International Zac Field with his first win catapulting him into the lead in the League Table. However with 4 events to go and best 8 to count things may well change after Event 8 when some competitors will be able to drop their lowest points score. Defending Masters Champion Neil Harvatt currently looks favourite to retain his title but Dean Field with his best run so far closed the gap by 3 points. Neil also plans the last event so will receive nil points that week. Ultravet Mark Tyszka looks to be odds on to snatch the Trophy from holder Pat O'Grady with another solid run. The Short Course competition - the overall and the Junior, looks to be between Beverley's Jake Field and Keelby's Sam Offler with 4 wins to Jake and three to Sam. It was good to see more new names appearing in the Series. Next week Halliday Hill is on the agenda. Please park efficiently as space is limited and keep young children well away from the main road where there is fast moving traffic. If you fancy planning an event in 2011 please get in touch with me Pete Kullich, Series Organiser.
