    Do you run any events for over 70 or a county team for over 70? I played for the county back in the 1970. Peter

    I’m afraid that nothing has changed with regard to O65 or O70 teams in the county. Perhaps things might be different next year.
    You could always put a request into the AGM to change things. Look out for the notice about the AGM.
