For the Diary
Cupla dates for your diary, if you please.

Saturday August 6th – Mourne Mountains 7X7s Challenge Walk.
For the fit and/or not fainthearted – but not exclusively - check out Spartan Red Sox walking club site and see 7x7s Finishers 2010 – mostly every walker I know would do it in under 12 hours, many in under 10. So give it a go. Big challenge and big achievement.
Defos from the mviews site, Jackill, myself and prob Msmurty – also some other takers may be there. They may identify themselves after this post.
It is a 7am to 9am start at Donard car park Newcastle – ie not before and not after. I think I will be on the hill about 7.30/8am but may be there from before 7am to get a parking space. So any other mviewers going, look out for us around registration – same deal afterwards. I am not looking for a PB, just a jaunt so anyone thinking finishing 9.30-10.30hours, tag along.

Saturday August 27th – “Scavenger” Walk 7 – Mourne Mountains.
A stay over event with Grade 2/1 Walk Saturday from Carricklittle car park beneath south of Annalong Valley – SE Slieve Binnian.
Horseshoe route taking in much of beautiful Annalong Valley.
Meal and pubs afterwards.
You need to book accomm soon.
Regular successful event. Very social – very easy-going.
