Trailquest on Saturday This Saturday is the final winter trailquest. It is a 2 hour event that starts at The Jolly Farmer in Leavening and there are meals available afterwards. If you fancy trying a trailquest then this is a great one to do as it is short and doesn't count for anything. You could practice on this one and then maybe enter the league, which starts in March, having got a practice one under your belt!   You can enter solo, mixed pairs, same sex pairs or generation (with your kids).   http://www.nymbo.org.uk/events.htm
