Please note this event will no longer be a VO event and will now be run as a Si event with stakes and kites. I apologise for the change at this late date.

The location of the event will be The Begwns, which is situated between Hay-on-Wye and Painscastle. This is a beautiful area of natural common land, normally covered by bracken and with a good network of paths.  The area rises up to 1350 ft, and gives outstanding views in all directions.

Normally the bracken would be high by now but due to previous weather conditions it has only just started to grow therefore the area is very open, which means some path ways are not clear. Hopefully by the 26th June this will have changed.
