Doulton Fountain & Peoples Palace

STAG Training Tuesdays 1 - 18 April 2017- Glasgow Green - No.566

What a great start to Tuesday Training! 3 Juniors & 8 Seniors and I feel things went well & the balance of a technically focused intro plus the use of the Permanent Course followed by a blind “O” run for the Seniors combined with a relocating exercise worked exceedingly well. Thanks to everyone who participated.

STAG Juniors no charge ; STAG Seniors £1 ; Members of other “O” Clubs £2 ; Non-Members £3.
