A reminder of approaching closing dates for those events likely to be most of interest to MDOC members.
The club's regular Wednesday training runs are hosted by club members so the location varies from week to week, but venues include Adlington, Bramhall, Didsbury, Hale, Hazel Grove, High Lane, Macclesfield, Marple, New Mills, Poynton and Romiley. The rota up to and including May 27th is shown below.
Richard and Jenny Gibbs are collecting Sainsbury's Active Kids Vouchers for MDOC again this year - over the past three years we have been able to get sets of free kites. So if you shop at Sainsbury's ask for them at the check-out, smile nicely and you may get more! You can also get them if you shop online. Alternatively (or as well) beg from your friends and relations.
The 2014 British TrailO Championships, which had to be postponed from last September, were held on Saturday at Twywell Hills and Dales near Kettering. MDOC's John Kewley (JK) became the 2014 British Champion in the Open class after winning both the TempO & PreO components of the Championships.
Well done, JK - an excellent result!
This year's NSL prize-giving event took place on Thursday 5th March at the Samuel Brooks in Sale on a new map 'Sale West' which included the most complex part of the Ashton-upon-Mersey map plus some brand new complex stuff to the south. The event was once again planned and organised by Peter Ross and Jillyan Dobby - the same team as for NSL4.
