Saturday FoD off-piste

We all met a Mallards Pike.  We’d agreed various start times to attract as many as possible.  The good thing about Staple Edge is that it’s not so big that you can’t find the main group when you arrive.  There was about 13 of us in the end when everyone met up. We ran the […]
