Thanks for braving the weather. Thanks also to Don, Gordon, Paul C, Sue, Duncan & Paul S for helping. Please volunteer to help at the next ones if you can. I wanted to use the south-west corner for a change given we had the southern start. I tried to have the short course relatively easy to start then getting a bit harder in the middle. For the long course the middle loop was quite challenging. Well done for being up to it.

I have one green bag left in the pub with a black thermal, gloves etc in it. It looks like it could be a military bag of some sort. If it’s yours please contact Don ( )
