Winter League Show Jumping Rosettes

Does anyone have any idea where the spare rosettes went after the Winter League Show Jumping in Somerford? Apparently there were some not given out: six per team should have been presented but only four were given. According to CHESHIRE HUNT NORTH, the spares were given to someone in F and D to hand over to Meg G.
