The event down for November 24th at Tower Hill has been changed for a variety of reasons, to facilitate Wexford scouts and to avoid issues with Coillte licences until after they are sorted by the IOA. There will instead be an event at Kennedy Park on November 17th with start times between 12 and 1.30. There will also be an event at Kilkenny Castle on a new map on December 8th.

A one-day Controllers Course is being held on Saturday 16 November in Newbridge, Kildare, and will run from 9.30am to 5.00pm.
