New BOK British Champions

Congratulations to our two new British Champions - Alice Bedwell W50 and Anne Donnell W80. Alice won her class by a remarkable 7 minutes. BOK also achieved a number of 2nd places, including last year's M21E British Champion Matt Crane and two of our very promising young juniors, Zac and Joe Hudd in M12A and M10A. In the relays, the BOK Hornets team of Mark Bown, Matt Franklin and Matt Crane took 3rd place in the Men's Premier, as did the BOK Fireflies W50 team of Alice Bedwell, Jo Foster and Alison Simmons.

Found at BOC Relays

A blue ConCurve goretex top was left in the BOK tent after the BOC relays. If it's yours, please contact Chris or Helen Kelsey to arrange its return.

Job Vacancy - Webmaster

Alan Honey is giving up his role as one of the Club's webmasters. John Simmons, the other webmaster, is continuing. If you are interested in replacing Alan, please contact him or John for further information.
Over the last few months a new club website has been developed by a student at City of Bath College, based on a content management system. This should make the website easier to maintain. The webmasters need to test and populate this new site over the next couple of months, if it is to go live in the autumn. The new webmaster does not need to be an expert, but needs to be comfortable working with computers and willing to learn.

British Champs - lost property

Pete Foster writes:
"It appears someone has inadvertently picked up my BOK top after the relays on Sunday. It will have been very soggy as a result of the stupendous effort expended by its owner during the event! It is a large top, with most of the letters that make up BRISTOL on the back, having been worn away. Has anyone picked it up in error? Thanks "

BOK News - errata

Mark Blackstone writes:

"The Editors apologise for 2 mistakes in BOK NEWS (posted out Tuesday 17th May). Firstly, pages 5 and 6 have been transposed, and secondly the advert for the KLUB's 40th birthday event was printed wrongly, so a substitute page 28 is included.
The relatively imminent closing date for the pre entries and the delay in finalising BOK NEWS was the reason for getting the magazines out without further delay."
