A Night Event event at Burbage Mines
On Thu 17th Nov 2016
Well it was a chilly night up on Burbage, well done to those that made the effort to get out. Great courses which made you concentrate all the way round. Thanks to Dom, Jacky and Mark Dakin for planning and organising (and standing there for 2 hours making sure we all got back safely!).
