Event Report – Munro March 2018

We had another wonderful pylon racing event down at Barry Murphy’s purpose built pylon racing field. There was a good turn out for the weekend with many camping out at the field. Andrew Arapakis did another of his beautiful spit roast dinners that has become synonymous with racing at Munro.

On a somber note, we held a minute’s silence out of respect for the very recent passing of Marvin Dunsmuir who owns the farm that the filed is built on. It was also good to see Barry’s new F3D model performing so well with Beau at the controls.
