Crathes – Level C Event – Sun 24 June 2018

This is GRAMP’s next Sunday event, squeezed in between all those Wed Summer Series ones we hope you’ve been enjoying.
Time to come and put all that practice into action against your Club Champs and (JD)2C rivals. Beginners also very welcome – come and find the GRAMP banner in the car park and someone will be on hand to help you choose a suitable course and get you going. You can go in a group so bring family and friends for a big day out as Crathes also has a cafe, Go Ape and obviously the castle, gardens and grounds to enjoy.
