Urban Sprint event December 2013
Date of event: Sun 15th Dec 2013
Level of event: Local (D)
Nearest town: Aberystwyth
Come along and enjoy the fun of orienteering around a University campus - with navigating around buildings, up or down stairwells and along alleyways providing a very different challenge to our usual open hill and woodland venues. This is the final local event for 2013 and to help celebrate a very busy and successful year for the club, come along after your run to Ta Med Da, the Campus restaurant for a social sunday lunch.
The RISK ASSESSMENT and MANAGEMENT will place particular emphasis upon the dangers associated with the traffic that might be anywhere on the roads within the activity area. It should all be obeying the 20 mph speed limit. Orienteers must remember that some vehicles might be going faster than this, even though there are several 20 mph repeaters painted on the road surface as well as spreed reduction humps to control the speed.
After the event there will be a meal at the Ta Med Da, a restaurant behind the porters' lodge at the main entrance.
There will be a choice of food and probably:
Carvery meat and 3 vegetables £5.15p
Roast Turkey " " " £5.15p
Vegetarian " " " £4.25p
Apple pie and custard £1.90p
This stops serving at 2pm and BEWARE things might start to run out before then.
Ta Med Bach (in the same room) has drinks and snacks and serves longer into the afternoon:
Americano coffee £2.20p
Other coffees, sandwiches snacks also available
Unfortunately the conservatory has just been re-organised and so this cannot be booked.
I have provisionally booked to reserve tables in the main dining hall.
I NEED TO KNOW NUMBERS BY TUESDAY. PLEASE LEFT ME KNOW IF DEFINITELY COMING, POSSIBLY COMING OR UNLIKELY TO COME.
I will then firm up table reservations with the Hospitality Services.
The food is all self service and there is NO NEED to inform me what you would like to eat on the day.
Many of the members feel that the club is in need of a new kit. Joe and Clive Have kindly designed a new top and will bring a copy of this along for members to see at the meal.
Prizes will be awarded after the meal for the league placings.
Regards and hopefully see you Sunday
