Isn't it time to update the list of threads by year?
Hi Mick.:wavey: If you mean the results threads for each year they can be found in the results forum. Perhaps I should add links to that section (and the Grand Salm results) in here?

Rollo, it is quite hard to navigate from that thread because results are mixed with a links in there. If you want to establish good navigation, then you'll have to have a thread with links only. Ideally in chronological order.
I hear you Mike. I've set this a major goal by the end of this year. Once that is done it will be easy for users to navigate and to add/edit information.

Thanks AR. I have added this to the index.
