Club Coniston

Club weekend in Coniston

Mon 3 Dec

Picture of some of the AIRE members who attended a recent club weekend in Coniston. After practising contours and simplification at Dale Park on Saturday we braved the torrential rain to put skills into practice at Holme Fell on Sunday. A challenging photo 'O' game c/o the Parkers kept us occupied during the evening. Thanks Dave Alcock for organising a great weekend!
