An Evening with Paul McGreal
The athlete, organiser and all-round top bloke will give a talk on some of his recent and forthcoming projects and events.
As well as being an orienteer and a member of Roxburgh Reivers, Paul has been involved as a competitor and organiser in a range of sports including triathlon, duathlon, adventure racing, hill-running, mountain marathons, mountain-biking, hashing, hockey and shinty. Paul is well known for his organisation of acclaimed adventure races and triathlons. He is organiser of the World Orienteering Championship 2015 to be held in the Highlands this summer. In addition Paul is a member of the Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue Team and has made a number of appearances on the BBCs Adventure Show. An informative and entertaining evening is promised.
Tea, Coffee and Juice will be available. Please bring snacks to share.
Fee: There is no charge for this event but donations to Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue are welcomed.
Details of our next event at Teviothead are now via the link to the right hand side.
This is the final local event before the summer break and were having a barbeque afterwards in Teviothead Hall, just across the road. Everyone welcome but you need to bring your own food.
The hardest course is Light Green+ which is a mixture of Light Green and Green controls. There will also be a contour-only version of this course for the people wanting an extra challenge. Ian is running a “contours” coaching session starting at 12 noon which will be helpful for Orange and Light Green+ competitors.
