I had a ball last nite. There is a reason why Ballycotton have been doing this for 30 years or more! Fair play to all involved.

good race and very well organised for the size of the crowd that ran it.
Have never done the summer series before. Does anyone know if they release the placings of the first two races combined or does this only come out as a final placing list when all 4 races are finsihed?

The overall placings after 2 races should be out sometime before the 3rd race in Churchtown South.
