Notes

Tyner family farm, 5 mins from the M11. Accessed off the R761. No signage apart from a couple of kites at the entrance. Unfortunately, no public transport along this part of the R761. Parking on grass. if this is too wet, we will spread out parking on hard standing. Car pooling will be appreciated.

Limited entry on day (subject to map availability) with surcharge above the online entry fee.

Start times 6 - 7pm with courses closing at 8pm. With shadowing of juniors, I will accommodate later split starts but I will be keen to wrap up sooner than later. 

Livestock will be confined to one field which is marked out of bounds. Some fences are marked as uncrossable with a purple line. These are sheep wire with electrified wire above. There is one mandatory crossing point on the long course. Otherwise use the gates which will be open.
