STAG Training Tuesdays 2 - 25 April 2017 - Alexandra Park - No.568.

Another great turn out with 12 participating.

The Cardinal Cones Warm-Up was moved into a wooded area which had +s & -s. Would have worked better as a pairs exercise.

The G"O"LF worked really well with several managing Eagles on a couple of controls.

See you at Tollcross Park on Tuesday 2nd May 2017.
