  1. Yes from me. As well as the usual verderers and freeminers routes I will lead (or be led) over to Worcester lodge and some downhill runs for the night. Blue up, red downs. Anyone else?

  2. Yes from me, I’ll probably get there around 1730/1800 and get a lap of Verds in before the main start @ 1900. I’m on nights, so won’t be able to make it till 2100.
