Donadea Forest Park

The first event of the Summer Evening Series in on next Tuesday (13th May) in Donadea Forest, between Clane and Kilcock, Co. Kildare.
Eileen is planning - a "Scatter" - same as last year - 25 controls out in the forest, go to as many as your course requires.

Long Course must punch at 22 controls, optimum route about 6 km.
Medium course go to 15, optimum route about 4km.
Short course visit 10 controls, the recommended route is controls nos. 1 to 10 in numerical order, about 3 km.
Timing will be electronic, a sportIdent "card" can be hired for €2 if you don't own one.
Start times between 18:00 and 19:30.  Courses close at 20:30 and the controls will be removed by 21:00.

Directions: from Clane take the Kilcock road R407 for 5 km, then turn left, signposted Donadea Forest Park.  4.5 km along the forest entrance is on the left.
We hope to be able to use the side gate to the car park - more information on this to follow.
