Winter Cross-Country Series

It's getting to that time of year again - off the road and into the
thick of it. A great way to spend a few Sundays over the winter.

There is a price rise this year, but for seven races £10 for seniors
and £5 for juniors is still a bargain (this reduces to £5 and £3 for
any entries after round 4). The race categories and prizes are still
the same - remember you need to compete in four races out of the
series to qualify for a horse-brass/trophy (best 5 for a team prize).

Dates as follows (will confirm the two provisional dates in due course):

5th November 2006 - Lauder
19th November 2006 - Dunbar
3rd December 2006 - Peebles (provisional)
17th December 2006 - Galashiels (provisional)
7th January 2007 - Berwick
28th January 2007 - Wooler
18th February 2007 - Norham

Races start at 11:30 for juniors and 12:00 for the senior races.
Registration is from 10:00 am for the first race, 10:30 am thereafter.
Norham are happy to host the prize-giving again - there's always soup,
tea and biscuits laid on in the village hall which is very much
appreciated by everyone.

Anyone who hasn't taken part in this before should give it a go - a
very nice series of races to participate in (nice locations, nice
friendly folk and nice distances). To be recommended!
