GMC18 – Flyer

Online entries will be via SiEntries, opening on April 1st when we’ll add a link straight to the event in their system.

Feel free to download the flyer and send it to friends or display at work or whatever it takes to help spread the word and fill the 100 places available.

LOOK! There’s a small group of GRAMPs currently in touch with each other to try and arrange a Mountain Marathon day – nothing too formal, just a chance to bounce tips and ideas of each other and go out to practice navigation on a mountain/moorland sort of scale. If you want to join in then email webmaster@grampoc.com and I’ll put you in touch.
