2024 leader’s vacancies

Run leaders are required for the following planned run dates, dates can change if you want but remember I need to give everyone including the magazine enough notice for a change, but runs going to a partiular place need to go to that place as we have already said we attend. When I planned the dates it was to avoid conflict with other events, so if you want to change a date to suit let me know ASAP. I need to know changes and finish places a full 2 months before the event takes place for publication.I am also looking for older, perhaps non riding members to help out on the section stand for the founders relay rally on Sunday 28th April at the Golden Eagle, Ashley Green.
