Be Tick AwareLyme disease is a serious tick borne illness

Ticks are prevalent in Thetford forest generally, including many areas used for orienteering by WAOC and neighbouring clubs. This is one area of the country where ticks carry the bacteria for Lyme disease. This is a debilitating and hard to diagnose condition, so it is important to check yourself (and your family members and pets) for ticks after you run or walk in these forest areas.

The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
