Would you like to participate in a South Ribble OC combined training & competition weekend in the Lake District on 29-30 October? The club are planning a residential weekend open to all club members. 

Training will take place on the Saturday, with exercises suitable for newcomers and more experienced orienteers alike. We are currently liasing with Carol McNeil, and expect to be using either Great Tower (the area used for this yearís club picnic) or Loughrigg. Sunday will see us taking part in the LOC Regional event at Lingmoor, near Ambleside.

Overnight accommodation is likely to be at the Rookhow Centre near Coniston. This is superb bunk-bedded accommodation which sleeps approximately 20 & has been used by the North-West Squad in the past. Facilities include self-catering kitchen, combined with an open plan lounge seating area, bathroom including showers (!) & a lovely wood-burning stove. In addition to the bunk rooms there is also limited sleeping space available in the lounge area.

How much will this fantastic opportunity cost I hear you ask! 
Charges for training on the Saturday will be kept to a minimum (i.e. cover the cost of maps & use of the area). Overnight accommodation will cost £11 adults & £6 juniors (under 16ís), excluding food. Individuals will be responsible for arranging their own entries in advance for the Regional event (see Lakeland OC website for more details or follow the link through our website www.sroc.org).

If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity please contact Sarah Fulwood (tel. 01524 61770 / 07834 039713) to secure your place. We will need to know numbers ASAP to secure accommodation (please be aware that to make the weekend viable we need at least 15 people to attend). Further details will be sent out directly to all those who have secured a place in due course.
