Planner for WEE 5 in Lady Dixon Park, 30th May

Hi folks We don’t have a planner for WEE 5 in Lady Dixon Park on 30th May, so as things stand we will just be re-cycling an old course. However, if you’ve had a sneaking feeling you’d like to have a go at this course planning lark, Richard Williamson (a very experienced Planner) has offered to mentor somebody who would like to have a go. Email secretary@lvo.org.uk or volunteer@lvo.org.uk or ring 078 1587 2010 if you’re tempted, but do it soon! Happy orienteering. Cecil
