A big thankyou to Robert for planning the event at Hafren Forest today! Results are up on the MWOC website. Well done all - some challenging terrain out there...and the deepest moss that nearly swallowed Alice!! Thanks to Steve and Ieuan on download and registration and to Kate, Daniel, Michael, Gabriella, Terry, Bev, Mark, Alice, Mike, Clive & Robert for making short work of collecting controls and everyone else who helped out today! The travellers rest in Llanidloes was a great place to compare splits and discuss plans for our next event - a Welsh League event at Gwanas on Saturday afternoon 7th Oct. We are also organising the Junior Home Internationals between Scotland Ireland England & Wales over that weekend with the Individual races on the morning of Sat 7th Oct and the JHI relay races on the morning of Sun 8th Oct. Hope we will see you at the Welsh League event! If anyone would like to help out at the JHI events and join in the excitement we would love to hear from you too!

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!
