Rosie's focus last week at the COACH building was how we make courses Fun, Fair & Safe. This Thursday, Steve Robertson continues the theme of appraising & improving courses, relating his experience of controlling a wide range of events. Physical training continues as usual.

At 6.30pm, from the Link room, Tess and Vikki will be looking and discussing control descriptions and doing a one mile loop. Please arrive on time if you can. All are welcome to join in.

After this- at 7.30pm (in the Park Room) - Steve Robertson (a Grade 2 Controller) will be giving some personal reflections on being a controller, he has had a lot of experience and it should be an interesting and informative evening. Do come!

Tess and Vikki will continue training with anyone who doesn’t wish to go to Steve’s session.
