CLARO News 7 Nov 17

Claro Top 10s

Well done to the Claro Top 10s this week. 3 intrepid Claros turned up at CLOK’s event on Saturday at  Birk Brow: Ruth Ker, Allen and Jackie Barnes. Ruth was first women on the Open course, Allen was first M75 and Jackie first W70. Feedback from these Saturday morning events has been excellent so they are well worth the short drive north.

Next Claro Events

The next Claro event is the YHOA Night League Event at Conyngham Hall Knaresborough this Saturday 11th November with starts from 6pm . There are courses for everyone including beginners. Full details are on the website here .  Car park charges apply until 6pm; it is free after that.

  • Emma Hardiman  – new to the sport and hopes to meet lots of friendly CLAROs at the Swinsty and Beecroft event on 19 Nov
