SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) An extra event and request for help

On Sunday 2nd September at Worden Park Leyland I am putting on an open 'Come and Try it' orienteering activity day for the MS Society Chorley and Leyland Group. I would be most grateful for any help any of our members can give me on the day. (Start times are 11am to 3pm). I need help with registration, results, start, 1st Aid, instruction and help for novices and some patrolling of the park.
There will be an unusual course for you to enjoy as well as the novice courses.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Request for helpers

On the evening of Wednesday 27th June at Beacon Fell Country Park we are putting on the annual Scout & Guide Orienteering Championships. If this year proves as popular as previous years then we could have upwards of 100 youngsters (and some oldsters) taking part. Karen and I would therefore be very grateful for any help people can give. If you can spare the time then please contact us on or 01772 721573. There is the usual range of courses for the youngsters plus two technical courses for those who wish to have a run.
Many thanks in anticipation - Bob & Karen
