Class 3 had just one judge. All the other classes had 2 judges one at each end.

£1000 raised for charities which are the air ambulance and a donation to Don Woodhouse's travelling fund to the World Ploughing match in Kenya.

The points in the classic class seem very low by comparison with other classes. Even the novices scored better

There was only one judge for the Classic class whereas the other classes had 2 judges judging more than 1 class in a row of plots, so the two scores from each end were added to give the result. Hence the scores are roughly doubled if I am making sense. I have since edited the post, thanks for bringing the point to my attention.

I thought that was probably the reason.

Often think this would be a good thread to have as a "sticky" where people can just post results as and when...

Quite agree, I was hoping someone would follow the idea, I find TFF is very user friendly to cut and paste results into without becoming to technical, on the other hand I find facebook hard work. If the thread is used correctly and does not develop into to much of a general gossip thread it will be very interesting. I have had several requests to post the score sheets but I am resisting as the last time I did that some time ago it lead to a public assassination of the judges, by some people who were not even at the match, something I cannot condone even if I felt hard done too on the day.
