Winter Handicap

A hardy frost was the main accompaniment to the 2012 Winter Handicap.  The solid terrain helped John Hobbs to beat the handicapper and claim the winner’s shield.  Emma Steinne was a close second with Richard Beaumont completing the podium.  The event will be most noted for the photo finish between the club’s most senior and most junior members – Jeff Taylor and Tom Whitworth.  Separated by 6 decades in age, but the timekeepers registered just a second between them at the finish, with Tom declared the first over the line.
