|Organiser||Fred Hamond (e-mail)|
|Planner||Wilson McAlister (e-mail)|
The unseasonally dull weather was counterpoised by a not-so-dull, challenging course planned by Wilson McAlister. Well done to everyone who got round it, particularly those new to this peculiar form of torture.
Thanks to the indispensable Bill Simpson on IT, Alan Gartside for the maps, and Jonathan McCloy, Seainin Nic Bhriain, Trevor and Jamie Wilson, and Daphne Hamond for collecting the controls.
Next week should be somewhat less physical at Belmont Park, but you never can tell …

If there are any pictures that subjects want removed, please let Philip know.
InstructionsThe wide open spaces of Barnett’s Park is the venue for WEE 6.
As may of you will know, the Cockney rhyming slang for hair is ‘Barnett’ and is so-called because of the horse fair held hereabouts since time immemorial (Barnett Fair = hair). Such was the fair’s fame that Ireland’s first hairdressing salon was established in Malone House, in the middle of the Park, by Cockney-born William Legge in the early 1800s. Read more at
Registration will be at the MOO (chip van) parked in the car park close to Malone House. The start/finish areas will be adjacent.
Note that if you pre-enter, you can pick up your control descriptions and proceed directly to the start. If you pre-enter and are hiring a dibber, you can collect it and your course descriptions from the MOO.
If entering on the night and you have your own dibber, you can input your details at the MOO using your dibber. If you need to hire a dibber, please complete the registration form then hand it in at the MOO, where you will be assigned a dibber number and given course descriptions.
For safety reasons, please give your name, dibber number and course to the marshal at the Start.
Long and short courses will be available. Conditions underfoot should be reasonably firm. Leg cover is advisable in case you decide to cut through brambles etc. Please do NOT plough across any flower beds!
DirectionsAccess is signposted from the top end of Milltown Road (A55 Ring Road), near the House of Sport roundabout on the Upper Malone Road (grid 33210 36908).
