Final preparations are in hand for the next SROC event, using Traitor's Gill (part of Caton Moor) for the first time for a daylight open event. The event is at level C so will carry ranking points, and Planner Roy McGregor (who took these photos of the area) is providing courses from Yellow to Brown, including Short Green. More details in the flyer. There is still room for a few more helpers, anyone able to offer a couple of hours on the day should contact Chris Roberts asap.

Several club members have recently returned from competing in the French 6 days, held in conjunction with WOC 2011. Notable results were recorded by Zoe Harding (3rd D18), Katrin Harding (6th D18) and Quentin Harding (6th H45). Zoe also won one of the day's races. Results may be accessed here. Thanks to Martyn Roome for a selection of photos from the week. Pictured are "Brian Jackson and Sue Roome with Mont Blanc in the background – on the rest day (they were not lost!)." Martyn commented: "The 6 days and WOC were fantastic, the weather red hot for the last 5 days, the terrain the most technically and physically tough that we have ever been in."
