Pre Event Info

Maroc is rounding off the spring season with a fun and sociable score event at Potarch. See how many controls you can dib in 45 minutes! There will be plenty of easy ones as well as some that are more challenging, so something for everyone. Cool down afterwards with an optional swim and then join other club members for a picnic on Potarch Green.

Don’t worry if you don’t have time to prepare a picnic as the Potarch Café will be open for eat in or take away. Details here:
