    It wouldn't have been a 5 star weekend without you Marshall. Thank you for organising such an amazing weekend and making future hikes far more enjoyable and safer for all of us.

    Hi Everyone,

    looking forwards to meeting you all.

    Are there people leaving from London with a free space in the car or in need of a company for the train journery :)

      That train didn't appear when I was booking my tickets. I am taking at 19:10 train from Euston via Crewe and will be at Church Stretton at 22:24. Hopefully I won't be too late but looking all trains from Birmingham to Church Stretton I probably won't be last :)

    Hi Folks

    The spaces on the course are now all allocated to the following Backabush and OAC members;
    Ella, Nina, Dee, Katie,
    Philip, Dave, PJ, Deepankar, Stanislav, Graham. If anyone wants, or can offer, car spaces then I suggest sort it out early via the message boards (B'Bush and OAC). This will allow those travelling by train to buy tickets early and maybe save some money. I look forward to seeing you all in April.

    Regards
