Redburn, Sunday 27th March 2011

For the first time in quite a few years we held an event at Redburn. It was great to be back at this top quality but tough area...and it was tough..thanks Dan and thanks Clare for organising.

Organisers Report:

Redburn is a great area to be in and with help from the farmer we had the perfect parking space but could do with it being slightly larger (next year?).  The kids and families of the Aboyne Academy teams going to the World Schools event in Italy worked very hard to make this event a success.   Apologies to those who suffered when the second set of brikkes arrived one hour late due to hour change.   Thank you all for being understanding and patient.   Some decided to run without a brikke and are on results as NS.   Finally I had problems setting up Routegadget and so had two Light Green courses up.   So now there is a Redburn updated with all the courses available.
