Hi All,
Here  are the corrected  TUI CUP World Cup results held in Narrandera, Australia.
A LARGE apology is owed to Richard Blackham who was 3rd equal with David Ackery who will be forwarded a certificate, trophy and prizemoney in due course. The error was only picked up on a recheck after the prizegiving.

Southwest FAI Challenge
From:Mike Richardson

Hi Roger,
Would you be so kind as to publish the dates for the 22nd Southwest FAI Challenge in one of the forthcoming SEN newsletters. We have pushed the date to November 3rd & 4th (reserve day is the 5th) due to the normal weekend being so close to the Team Trials at Lost Hills.
I am not sure if you can put a link to the contest flyer or not but I have attached one anyhow. There will be a link to flyer on the NFFS Calendar shortly.
Thank you Roger, you’re the best,
Mike Richardson
