The Turkey Trot

Annual post-Christmas orienteering and social for members and their guests at Delamere Community Centre.

Parking, start and finish will be at Whitefields car park, Delamere East (we won't be putting out much signing as you should all know where it is!!!) - it will be a score style event starting at 10:40 (registration from 10:15 to 10:30 please!) - it shall last 40 minutes (and unpunctuality may be penalized this year, so bring a watch!) Also, fancy dress would be welcomed, if you don't find it too embarrassing, and there might be a prize for the best dressed...

In order to handicap the event, Lachlan will be editing the maps to different degrees. and so he needs to know who and how many people are coming. If you are coming to the event, please email () him with the names of everyone in your party as soon as possible.

Afterwards, we will decamp to Delamere Community Centre for the social.

And as a little teaser for the event...

'Twas weeks before the Turkey Trot, when all through Delamere
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The controls weren't yet hung in the forest with care,
In hopes that Deeside would not be there till the 27th;

If this is too subtle, maybe you should brush up on your reindeer names (both in the poem and not)...

Lachlan Chavasse, Planner

The Social

As per usual, the club will provide soup, bread and hot drinks (tea and coffee) and everyone attending is expected to bring a savoury or sweet contribution. If you can't decide which to bring, throw a dice (if it's 1 to 3 bring savoury; 4 to 6 bring sweet, or bring both!). Duncan and Ruth Harris have kindly agreed to preside in the kitchen and may appreciate one or two offers of help from non-runners.

The Statistician's Trophies will be presented to the DEE man and woman with the highest number of ranking points at the time of the event.
