The organiser is Jon Steed.

Non members are welcome as we are keen to use this simple format to introduce new people to BADO. Please bring as many people as you can – just tell Jon. how many are coming.

Run, jog or walk to visit as many of the controls as you can in 45 minutes.

We are using EMIT timing to log your start and finish time. If you do not have an Emit block then please tell the organiser and we will provide one

So bring a pen and EMIT brick if you have one. Compass may be useful but not essential

The Weybrook Park will put on sandwiches and chips but they must be ordered beforehand with the organiser.

Please do come along if you possibly can and it would really help the organiser to have some idea of numbers so if you could let Jon know if you can make it that would be great.
