Welcome words from Pam....
Dear Centurions
It was with much pride and pleasure that I was elected as your President on Saturday.
I must thank David Jones and Phil Carroll who Proposed and Seconded me. I also thank Eric Horwill for his dedicated 3 years as President and hope I can continue as my predecessors have done over many years..
The Isle of Man 100miles this year already has many entries and I am sure we will again have new Centurions.  
I wish you all good walking and training in 2019 and hope you achieve the success you are looking for
Pam Ficken C 934
