Unfortunately due to the complete lack of snow on any of our mountains, not even a small patch of snow, we have reluctantly decided that this year we will not be able to run the Convenors Canter on Saturday the 29th April.

Instead we will organise a special event for ALL comers, of any age, to be held at Farleitter, where we always run the BBQ (directions at end) starting at 12 noon. This will be a decathlon style event requiring a mixture of skill and strength in activities like orienteering, obstacle courses, welly throwing etc. –  basically whatever Mark and Sean can invent. We will then repair to our usual BBQ at 5pm – all are welcome to come along and join in the BBQ, even if you haven’t participated in the activities. We would ask for a £5 donation from everyone (competitors or otherwise).

This event is not just for the kids we would hope that any members come along of any age.

In order to cater correctly please can you RSVP directly to me at rona40@btinternet.com by Wednesday the 25th of April. We are really keen to end the season with some activity. If you won a trophy last year please keep it safe on your mantle piece until next year .

Looking forward to seeing as many club members as possible

Rona Hulbert, SSC President
