Fri 25th Aug 2017 7:00pmOtherThornbridge Weekend

Annual club camping weekend at Thornbridge Hall for all the family, Friday evening to Sunday pm ... and in the calendar fully eighteen months in advance, thereby indicating the hyper-efficiency of the new regime (if not of its tractors).

Expect the usual fun and games including Ashford-in-the-Water fell race (finishing in-the-water); kids fell race; Friday night something or other; cake & cava in the Sat late afternoon sunshine (not guaranteed); perhaps an impromptu EGM to spice things up a little (again, not guaranteed); BBQ Sat night (bring something to blacken, and an instrument for entertainment if you aspire to such things); may be some three-legged orienteering; kids & big kids cyclo-cross race; plus plenty of opportunities to cycle on the Monsal trail, run off your hangover on Longstone Edge on the Sunday morning, or just hang out on the campsite.

All welcome, especially new members, and kids and partners particularly welcome. Surprising though it may seem, many have come away reporting themselves very satisfied with their DP 'full immersion' experience. The facilities are remarkably sophisticated for a DP event, including 'luxury' industrial kitchen, hot showers and loads of room to run around outside and in. Costs something like £10 per adult per night/day and £5 for kids (under 5s go free), but organisers Bronwen and Tim Ray should be able to reveal all in time.

Sat 26th Aug 2017 11:00amDPFR raceThornbridge

Part of the club's annual Thornbridge weekend, but you don't need to be camping to pitch up. The classic Ashford-on-the-water route, provided always that sufficient numbers of entrants can remember it, culminating with a compulsory dip in the water at the finish. Some kind of kids race is also likely from the campsite in the afternoon, should you wish to make a day of it with the family (but haven't the heart to commit them to the full overnight extravaganza).

Graham Berry's one-off 70th birthday race was such a gem that the webmaster and calendar agreed in the pub immediately following that we cannot let Graham's 80th pass without a repeat running.  With a winning time on a fine day in December 2014 of 2hrs 15mins, and some stalwarts taking over 3 hours, the 9am start certainly needs retaining for the increasingly more mature.  As to other arrangements - all in good time, folks, all in good time.
