Nash Woods

Many thanks to Terry ably assisted by Bev and Al for planning and organising todays great event at Nash Woods. A big thankyou to David Pal for controlling, Bill Marlow on download, Fay on the near start, the scouts for providing a great catering service. And a huge thankyou to Di and the army of helpers from Wrekin who helped out in a myriad of ways from carparking, starts, registration, control collecting - really appreciated all your help. The western MWOCcies set off in rain and mist so the dry weather was particularly appreciated! Welcome to the Aber Uni team, and good to see many new faces - hope to see you at the Welsh Championships weekend 4th&5th March at Merthyr Mawr organised by Swansea Bay Orienteering Club and the South Wales Orienteering Club event at Cwm Lickey which is the first round of the Compass Sport cup on 12th Mar. Our next MWOC event is at Brynbras on 2nd April.
