Training with Mandi King - 2018

Can everyone please be on time for lesson. Last lesson is late and we don't want it running on any later.

Also I have provisionally booked mandi for Sunday 18th March for outdoor xc. Venue to be confirmed probably either Dukes or Moira.

Any outstanding money needs to be paid to me directly please.

Enjoy your lessons everyone.

FIRST AID COURSE - Saturday 7th April

A basic one day first aid course is going to be run at the castle in the gallery on Sat 7th April from 9.30 - 3.30. It will cover all the basics and leave you with a 2 year cert. It can also be used as a refresher for those who may have already got the cert. It is open to non club members also (with club members getting preference). Spaces are limited.

This is very worthwhile course to do as it gives you the confidence if needed in a first aid situation and peace of mind. Those who have done it before thought it was a day well spent. Carol who does the course is very good and helpful.

Price is €40 (depending on numbers) and is VERY reasonable so I do suggest people consider this offer and make use of it. Anyone who is interested please can you contact Grace directly on 0868921186 to reserve your spot
