Ling Fell advert

This Thursday, join WCOC for a mid-week mini-adventure at Ling Fell, near Cockermouth. Long and Short technical courses, plus "Nighthawk" for those who fancy more running and easier navigation.

Many thanks to Anne Burbidge and Liz Elliot for all their hard work planning and organising a great Club Chase at Hawse End - finding somewhere as luxurious for next year's assembly venue is going to be a real challenge!

Further thanks to Catherine Wetherfield for organsing another fun evening of food, prizes and games at the Club Social!
