Event Report

Please check your results carefully for spelling/club/year of birth/correct timing and score, and let us know asap of any errors. If your score is not what you were expecting, and you don't feature in the wrong-answers list, one of us has made a mistake.

Don't forget that if you can't make a particular event, you can get the map and questions from Grahame , and run by yourself before or after the day, and have your score included.

Additional information from the event team

Planner Kath Speak has provided the following information:

Parking - the pub has a very large car park, so hopefully most people will be able to park there. This is free for people using the pub, provided they enter their registration number on the machine located on the bar inside the pub. There is also another car park just north of the pub, which is also FREE!

Food arrangements -  the pub are happy to accept orders on the night, but we need to give them some idea of numbers beforehand.

Reserving a map

To reserve your map(s) for this event, please email Grahame at   indicating the number required by 5pm on Sunday 12th January. An indication of whether you are likely to eat in the pub would also be useful.

If you are a "first-timer", please provide details of your club, and year of birth, along with your name.

And don't forget ...

All competitors MUST wear a high-visibility top.

There are no exceptions to this, and no excuse for not wearing one, as we can lend you one if you have forgotten yours.  

NO High Viz top, NO GO
