At least it was a "small" event.
Maybe you could treat these events as O training (e.g. actually practice specific techniques etc.) as whilst there is FVO junior training at events we don't often have FVO adult training (except for the fantastic weekend away) so really you have to do it yourself!. At least the weather was nice!
Ah, I was just cross at myself for being such a gump. Serves me right for no warm-up, rushing to get back, etc etc. And, yes, the weather was grand ;-)
