Compass Sport Cup Final - Urgent Reply Required!
As you probably know, SYO have successfully qualified for the CompassSport Cup Final again this year. It will be held in Devon on Sunday 22nd October and as usual we'd like to get a strong team out to continue our long tradition of finishing on the podium. This means we need to try and get as many people as possible to the event - not just our best runners (who are obviously important!) but also as many others as possible as the more we have, the more chance of lowering our competitors' scores.
As it's such a long way and to encourage as many club members as possible to attend, SYO is planning a 'CSC weekend', travelling by coach. We have reserved YHA accommodation at Okehampton. The club is heavily subsidising the travel and entry costs. Competition courses are Orange and above.
Coach & accommodation is limited, and will be allocated on first-come-first-served basis so please email Jacky Dakin by Monday 17th July to reserve a coach seat and bed. Any unreserved places will be offered to DVO.
Please also email Jacky if you are planning to attend the competition, but intend to make your own travel & accommodation arrangements.
