    Peris for the one-off British Long Champs.

    So the assumption is the British Short Champs race will be in England.

    I think you can only count on short races for curved balls, the mediums and longs will be familiar. My fingers are crossed for arncliffe gala.

    I gather Flower Scar will be a Medium English Champs, with the date changed to be in March rather than Feb

    Good. Pennine races always bowl you a googlie or ten. Flower scar has a lot of different challenges packed into one race.

    Lad's Leap in April.

    Think it was inter-counties a few years back.

    My only comment is that the 27th July is a bit early for the English Championships to conclude.

    Uphill trial for me (not that I'll get anywhere remotely near selection)

    Hopefully the inter-counties, if we have a team and if I'm selected... although both on the same weekend might be tough.
