Training in the Lake District

I can confirm that DVO has a training day in the Lakes on Saturday 5th September (afternoon), at a delightful little area called Eycott Hill, mapped by Borderliners.

The Master Plan –
meet at the parking location (details to come) at about mid-day. Walk into the area as a group to start the sessions by 12:30.
Run around until about 3:30 (that will be 3 hours hard brain and body work out!), then we all help collect the controls so we can all leave by 4pm (September gets cold if out on the hills any later).

Meet at a pub for food that evening, eat, drink and laugh. Sleep and then run the Borderliners Level B event on the Sunday, if you wish.
Names to Ann-Marie Duckworth () by Monday 24th August, so I have enough maps printed.
