On Sunday 30th and Monday 31st May the Lake District Visitor Centre at Brockhole, near Ambleside, is encouraging visitors to try out a range of activities.  Steve McLean is organising the orienteering part and is looking for volunteers to assist in a number of ways.  If you're available for part or all of these 2 days and are willing to help show non-orienteers round a simple course, set up a string course or man an info desk Steve would love to hear from you.

Steve McLean is the planner for BOF's Club Training Day at Witherslack on Saturday 22/5/04.  This is an ideal opportunity for club members to try out various techniques without the "pressures" of competition.  Whatever your experience there'll be something suitable.  Places must be booked in advance through Steve so please phone or email him asap if you're interested.  (The GB Sprint Champs is being held just down the road on the same day so there's an opportunity to combine both)
