A surprisingly decent turn out for a chilly Monday evening of leaflet dropping. The promise of seeing York Minster illuminations probably brining more people out than expected. The night started with Tristan donning the Cape of Good Deeds in honour of his 100th session and a quick bit of numbering off whilst naming your favourite flying thing.

We split off into 3 groups. A longer run heading to Hull Road led by James and Nikki, a mid distance led by Ed and a shorter route led by Nick. The aim being to get rid of all your leaflets before getting back to the Minster at the very specific time of 7.35 for a bit of fitness. Mitch led a small walking group which joined up with Nick's team.

Many letterboxes were stuffed and there was only a small bit of double dropping when the longer running group overlapped with the middle distance runners. There were also reports of a lost wife from Rich but no major concerns and we counted every one back at the Minster for a team photo in front of the fancy lights (apologies for my head blocking a few people in the photo!).

We then headed round to the front of the Minster for a Rock, Paper, Scissors throw down with the winner picking the exercise for the rest of the group. Martin started off rather cruelly with press-ups but was swiftly defeated by Lucy who went on an impressive winning streak, effectively leading the fitness session by choosing all of the exercises! However, Jenna was the eventual winner and holds the title of GG York Rock, Paper, Scissors champion 🏆

Fortunately for all Nicky W will be back next week!
