Further Information

The 2018 FVO Club Championships will be on Saturday 17th November at Abbey Craig. We have booked the Logie Church Hall (Lesser Hall) as a base and will have the start at the entrance to Abbey Craig from the Alloa Road, at the SE corner of the area. The finish will be in Causewayhead Park.

As at last years event, we plan to have soup and cakes available in the Hall for after the event, for sale in aid of Dougal Spenceley's World Challenge expedition to Madagascar. No dirty shoes in the Hall !

Event Details :

Parking Along the Alloa Road, beside Causewayhead Park, or at the Wallacxe Monument car park

Starts Between 11.45 and 13.15 (slightly later than last year, as we can only get the Hall from 11.15). Courses close at 14.30.
