Next event – Teviothead 7th June

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.

Next event: Tweedbank 18 January

Our next event is at Tweedbank on Saturday 18 January and incorporates the club championships.  We’ll then retire to The Barns for our AGM.   Please note the important instructions on the event link on the right hand side of this page.

If you intend being there and haven’t already emailed Lindsey please do so now in order that sufficient maps can be printed – there’s no charge if things change and you don’t make it.  A few extra will be printed on a first-come basis.  email:  Lindsey@Lknox.me.uk
