It was great to see such a large turn out at our last training at Redmires Resevoir. Hopefully everyone found something useful to take out of the training. Next on the menu is Burbage mines on Saturday 7th of November (1-3pm). For those that haven't been, Burbage Mines is a small area of very intricate mining works and is perfect for practising using contours, which is the focus for this weeks session.
As usual there will be a number of courses on offer so there will be something for everyone and the compact nature of the area means that it is a great area to practice on.
Parking is in the layby, about 500m west of Ringinglow on Ringinglow road. Controls will be out from 1pm until 3pm and maps will cost £1.
Look forward to seeing you all.
