NGOC League Bixslade by Abi Bateman
4 of us set off eagerly to the famous NGOC league event in Bixslade. I enjoyed the event, only having a few problems of brambles in my way and on my second control arriving on top of the crag so I could see the control but not reach it for another 5 minutes of scrambling down. I finished 5th on the Green Course. Better results were shown by Jack Giltrap who came first on his first ever Short Green course in a time of 39:39, followed by Lisa Smith in 7th (first ever event) and Harry Lee in 11th (also first ever short green course).
