We’ve quite obviously got a host of good events for you! That’s one of our main reasons for being here! There is some fantastic events lined up and in the pre-planning and planning stages. What is “pre-planning”? They are just a good idea the team have had whilst out on the trails. It may be scribbled on the back of an envelope somewhere or written on beer mat!
