For this year we have booked a top-notch bunkbarn in Sedbergh (http://www.howgillsbunkbarn.co.uk/) for the weekend of 28th-30th November.
From there we will:
– do a short headtorch nav event on the Friday evening, and retire to the pub to discuss and relubricate
– run a 3-hour score event on the Saturday into the wonderful Howgill Hills
– probably some kind of fun & games Saturday afternoon
– group run into the Howgills on Sunday morning to collect the controls
The cost is just £40 for the weekend accommodation and events (we’re aiming just to break even).
It was initially open purely to CVFR, but there are still places left (the bunkbarn holds 35). So if anyone else would like to take part, contact me (see below).
There are also a few (20) places to just do the Saturday score event, no accommodation. The cost is £18 for those, for the cost of the venue.
Visit as many checkpoints as you can in a 3-hour limit.
