Cotswold Way Relay - update

Phil Warry writes - As an update to my earlier article (posted on 5 March) about organising a BOK team for this year’s Cotswold Way Relay, I now have 7 people who want to run, so need 3 more to make up a team. In particular, we need at least one more lady to run, as we need a minimum of 3 ladies for a mixed team, but only have 2 so far. As an added incentive, all competitors will get a free race T shirt this year! Last year the entries were full by the end of May, so if you would like to take part, please let me know either by e-mail or on 0117 9654287 - as soon as possible.

Details of the event are here-

Klub Weekend 18th-20th June

SBOC has once again invited us to join them for their Mid Summer weekend, which this year will use Margam Country Park as the event campsite and Merthyr Mawr for the Saturday Regional event and Sunday 2x2 relays. There will also be a Friday evening event at Graig Fawr and we plan to have a barbecue on the Saturday evening. Margam Country Park has plenty of camping space and free access to the country park and some attractions. Fees are £7.50 per unit per night (tent or van), no hook ups but shower and toilets; see www.npt.gov.uk/margampark for further details. All events are within 20 minutes of the campsite. Online entries and campsite bookings are via http://www.fabian4.co.uk/, closing date Monday 14th June 2010. Further information is available here. This has always been a very enjoyable and sociable weekend in past years, so we would recommend you to come along. Please let Chris or Helen Kelsey know if you intend to come so that we have a rough idea of numbers.
