Harriers—Sherwood Cup

Harriers—Sherwood Cup

Honourable mention should be made of those stalwarts who turned up at the Novice Race on Saturday, May 13. It was so soon after the Capping Ball that the club-captain had had time to mark out the course on his way to bed. The winner had sedulously trained by going to bed early on Friday night and BO it is that P. B. de la Mare at last joined the veterans.

Less commendable was the effort of vice-captain Daniell, who left the record book in the tea shop at Worser Bay. This action, ensures Dick of a place beside Mr. Sherwood in Novice Race history.

The above-mentioned book was recovered by the fast pack in a run from Miramar a couple of weeks later, but where was Danlell? [unclear: Ho] for the wiek-end?

On May 27 the Inclemency of the weather was tempered by the hospi-tality of A. J. D. Barker at Belmont.

The long run was enjoyed by all and the afternoon tea met with a grateful reception. We like running at Belmont and some of us even descended to swimming. The swimmers were all in the slow pack, and it may be thought by some that these simple fellows, having been persuaded to harry, are now open to the influence of all sorts of unreasonable and irresponsible ideas.

Another club highlight was the Sherwood Cup Race held at Lindon on June 10. Mr. Sherwood and S. K. Newall combined to give us a good afternoon. There was even some running done, and in this McDowall, de la Mare and Hawke were prominent. The handicappers were badly fooled by Mark Poole, who romped home with a minute to spare.

Our next run will be an invitation by Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Shorland on the 24th, followed by the Doune Cup on July 1.
