Training at Scolty this week
Next up in our block of training is a session at Scolty woods this Sunday, Feb 9th, suitable for all club members and also part of the current introductory sessions. Gramp OC will also be training at Scolty on the morning and we are grateful to them for letting us use their map and area. In order to accommodate both clubs without over-crowding the training courses we will start at the sligthly earlier time of 10:00, with the session running until 11:30. Please meet in the FC car park (note parking fees apply) ready to walk to the training base at 10:00. Adults £3, Juniors £1.50

Please remember to sign up for the session here, by the end of of Friday, so that we can print enough maps and allocate people to suitable training groups.

Maroc relay teams at the JK and British Champs

We will be planning to enter both junior and senior teams at the British Champs weekend  in the south of England (22/23rd Mar) and at the JK in north Yourkshire over Easter weekend. There are courses suitable for all juniors from yellow standard upward. Adult courses are mostly at full technical difficulty (green equivalent) although there are some options to enter AdHoc teams which include an orange leg also. Please let Sarah know if you are going to either of the weekends and would like a relay run. Deadline of 20th Feb to let Sarah know please!
NB Anyone planning an event on Condes should use version 9 for now until we find a new printer that accepts version 10.
Fantastic Fanatics
Have you signed up to Fantastic Fanatics yet to help Maroc raise some money with zero effort?

Since Maroc first joined the new fund-raising initiative a couple of months ago, Fantastic Fanatics has grown massively in terms of the number of retailers involved in the scheme. It is now possible to raise money every time you shop online at a vast number of places, including retailers such as: Boots, Currys, Europcar, Evans Cycles, Iceland, Inov8, M+S, Tesco delivery and many many more.

To set yourself up in Fantastic Fanatics, first click on "Join as a Fan". Once you have entered your details you will need to go to the "Club Manager" to select Maroc as your favoured club. Then finally you need to set up the bank card that you want to link to your fan account by selecting the  "Card Manager". Then every time you use this card to buy anything from any of the registered retailers a proportion of your spend will be donated to the Maroc without you having to do anything further.

The sooner you sign up, the sooner we start raising some money! Any problems or questions, just give Sarah a shout... sarah @ (delete spaces)
