SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Junior (and Adult) Training goes ahead on 4th October, different venue

As noted below the planned training and event at Lords Lot on Saturday 4th October have been cancelled. This was because of extensive felling rendering the map out of date, plus the area is a lot more "rugged" than befits a White and Yellow course. However the training part of the day will still go ahead, but at Salt Ayre in Lancaster. See the Fixtures page for details.
