Season's Greetings

Happy Christmas to all my friends in WFDBWGUA. I am sorry about the lack of cards and the lateness of this message, but Anne is not at all well with labrynthitis and things are a bit fraught at present. We are postponing Christmas until she is better.

Friday 22nd December 2017

Cancelled due to family illness - that is, Chris and my outing is cancelled, not the actual Friday 22nd.

TLoB is at a loose end on Friday morning whilst his better half  does her Christmas shopping, so I'm meeting him at the lower barn (at 9:45) to roam around our local fells. All welcome.

Start times now confirmed as
Run 8:30am
Walk 9:00am

Return to cafe by 11:30am

All welcome

Xmas Run/Walk Tockholes Sat 16th Dec

We thought (TF & SN) you'd like a change of venue this year for the post run/walk  xmas coffee & mince pies etc. So we propose meeting at the Cafe at Tockholes

Post Code for Sat Nav : BB3 0PA

Start time for runners is 8:30am and possibly 9-9:30am for the Walkers (SN will liaise). with the aim to be back at the cafe for about 11:30am.

I went and had a recce yesterday and the cafe is open from 10:30 - approx 3-4pm. The approach from Belmont was a bit dicey in the snow, so will keep a careful eye on the forecast and will post an update later in the week if there are any changes.

Picture if you will...

...two weary travellers, moving slowly along a snow covered track in a pine forest on a northern hillside. Approaching from a side path on their right, appear two wolf like beasts - for a moment the two pairs pause and eye each other suspiciously.

Then the beasts' owner appears, and it becomes clear that lives are not in danger, for the 'wolves' are in fact Northern Inuits, a breed that has been developed by crossing a number of sledge dog breeds with German Shepherds, especially to give a wolf like appearance, and the pine forest is Wilderswood. YJ and ETU engage the owner in friendly discussion for a few minutes, then both parties continue on their separate ways.

Panic over, we live to run another day.
