Christmas Cards

Merry Christmas

Tis the season to be jolly..... went by bike into town to buy my cards, not only did I manage to avoid queing for the busy car parks but also managed to park outside the CANCER RESEARCH shop, and of course no parking ticket required.


I received the 2008 RBR results and Newsletter by e-mail yesterday, I expect they'll be posted on the website soon
Entrant: #69; Points: 480/2000; enough for another Bronze Award, and finishing 103rd out of 171 finishers (from 274 entrants). Not what I had aimed for, but not too bad considering some personal problems which just about stopped my RBR in July.

"MUST TRY HARDER"...... next time, whenever that may be, as it's unlikely I'll be entering for 2009.

End of 2008 Rally and waiting for the results....

Only 30/100 landmarks visited, just have to wait and see how many were correct!
The one I was most unsure about was Northants, Great Doddington, 14th century churchyard cross, some churchyards have lots of crosses..... I intended to re-visit but didn't!
