Controller's Course - 14th November

We'd like to encourage more members to become event controllers, and in particular for Grade C controllers to upgrade to Grade B. We have an ever-ageing set of Grade B and Grade A controllers, needed for National and Major events, who really need to be replaced by younger athletes.

Tony Thornley has agreed to run a Controller's course again, probably in the Ilkley or Otley area. We have a provisional date of Sunday 14 November in the afternoon after AIRE's Esholt event.

The course will be for those wishing to be Grade C controllers and for those wishing to upgrade to Grade B controllers. As well as attending the course, other criteria for becoming a licenced controller are set out on page 84 of the rules. It is not necessary to have met all the criteria before doing the course - some can be met afterwards.

Please let Chris Burden know if you wish to attend.
