Report

It was WAOC's first event at Trumpington Meadows today and the weather was very kind to us. It was great to see pupils from local school come along. We also had a lot of people from our previous events who came with their Park-O passports which really sped things up for the download team.

We have a bigger event at Ferry Meadows next weekend with a wide range of courses including ones similar to our Park-O courses.
