Claro News 6th August 2018

Claro Activity
Well done to those Claro’s who made the trip to the Lakes 5 days. In the words of one Claro Competitor. ‘You know how every day is hot and sunny this summer? Well, we sorted that out by going to the Lake District for our summer holidays! For an added challenge, we lowered the cloud level until the fells mimicked night orienteering and all those wearing glasses steamed them up to add to the fun’  All seemed to enjoy the well-organised event despite the standard Lakes weather and suggest we all add it to our diaries for 2022.

Here is Liz Drewe on the podium with her prize.

Club League

The last spring flower events will be the final two counting event in the club league, details are here on the website. Allen Banister who currently compiles the results needs to step down so he can concentrate on the SI duties he has taken on for the club, so we need a volunteer to take on next years League, all the spreadsheets are set up they just need populating after the events and lots of training will be given, please speak to Tim or Allen if you are interested.
