Well, the snow melted, the sun almost shone, and the 'stream crossing' although higher than in
2008 was lower than the day before!
Thanks to Neil and Shirley for organising, to the famous Ilkley Ladies Catering Team who fed the 300,
to the many, many marshals and helpers on the day. And a big thank you to the Nell Bank Centre whose fantastic
facilities we enjoyed and to Mr Boothman whose fields we enjoyed.
