Craig Lan Las 12/11/17

Planner Eunice at the start with Pete Louise and K,

Thanks Eunice for planning a great event at Craig Lan Las today . Well done all those taking part – it was certainly very fresh on the top with some great views in the sunshine. Thankfully the Hafod Arms at Devils Bridge provided a great option for a pre run coffee and warm up before a slightly delayed start. Thanks everyone for being so accommodating about the change of plan. Many thanks to Mr Edwards and Mr Humphreys for kindly giving us permission to hold the event today and helping us enjoy a great day of orienteering. Thanks to Tom for helping put out controls and registering everyone and thanks to Steve on download. Thanks to Robert, Paul, Eunice and Gabriella for collecting in the controls.
