Summer Series 2019 Finale - BBQ & Prizegiving

Our Summer series comes to its traditional close in Hollywood on Tuesday, June 18th, with a Score event (and an adventure course).

Parking and registration are in the village of Hollywood, near Tuttys Bar Hollywood (who have graciously agreed to once again host our BBQ and Prizegiving). Start times are from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Parking in the Village can be limited, so consider carpooling, or parking closer to the Primary School and Church at the entrance to the village.

There will be two courses on offer:

Adventure – 1.5 km
Score Event ( 1hour, get as many controls as possible)

Entry fees:
Children/Students/OAP/Unwaged - €5 (€4 for club members)
Adults - €8 (€7 for club members)
Family - €20 (€15 for club members - 2 adults + kids)

If you are not a member of a club, you can join CNOC for free on the night (annual membership from next year is only €10 per family).

Si-cards will be used for timing (no SIAC) - if you need to rent an Si-card, you can do so at registration for €2 (€40 fee if not returned).

After the event we will be holding our BBQ, and during that I'll present prizes for the series. This year, I'm mostly recycling old prizes from previous events and years, so it'll be a bit of a lucky dip. I may even throw in some chocolate for the kids (big and small). Bottle of wine if you're lucky.

Hope to see you all there!
