So we have had the Club Champs on an excellent new area (many thanks Richard and all involved) followed by the Club Dinner and Awards (also many thanks to all involved) … the excitement levels must now be fit to burst. Well to maintain the momentum we have the eagerly awaited AGM …
All club members are warmly encouraged to attend to deal with the business of the day and to vote in your new elected officials.

Due to the size of the area it has not been possible to plan Elite courses, which for M21E requires a winning time of 90-100mins, without sending people into areas of significant bracken and undergrowth which have grown over the Summer. Therefore, it has been decided not to have Elite courses, but to have Long courses that use just the runnable and technical parts of the area. This decision has been agreed with the BOF Events and Competitions Committee.

The unclaimed maps from today will be at the club champs and dinner. You will probably need to make a note of which course you ran to find the correct map.
