SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) New way to raise funds for the North West Junior Squad

Families with children in the squad are being asked to collect bags of good quality second hand clothing, bedding, curtains, soft toys, belts, handbags and shoes. The more we collect the more we raise. We can if necessary provide bags and are hoping to have two collection points in the club - one in Lancaster and one in Preston. For now any items can be left with the Nash family - either at our house or at an event. If you are bringing large quantities to an event can you let us know in advance so we make sure we have space. Thanks in anticipation.

SROC had a very well attended and hugely enjoyable bbq at the Scottish 6 days - photo above, more in the Tay 2009 gallery. Our thanks to Gavin and Mary for hosting this event at their wonderful holiday house (only a pity that the butler appeared to have had a day off).

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Successful Rangers' Day at Beacon Fell, Wednesday 5th August

Yesterday the Rangers family sports day got an amazing turn out. I have never seen so many people on Beacon fell before. At one time all the car parks and laybys were full! I had 27 groups of between 3 and 10 people go out on my 2.8km 9 controls course between 11am and 1.30pm. 14 groups completed the course with times between 45 and 90 min in most cases. Mark Edwards went round in 16 min and his son Will in 20 min. Thanks Mark for collecting in the controls.
