Plans for the training weekend
From Ian Beattie (whw Race Director) Monday 24th October 2011 ....
We are planning to hold a ‘WHW training weekend’ on 20/21 January 2012 at the Oak Tree Inn, Balmaha.
The plan would be for everyone to meet there on the Friday night, catch up in the bar, then do a 30 mile training run to Inversnaid and back on the Saturday. We would then stay overnight on the Saturday for some informal chat in the bar, with people free to arrange their own runs for the Sunday morning if they fancied.
I have spoken to the Oak Tree and provisionally booked the whole place. The number of rooms available and the prices are as shown below.
If you would like to go please send your room request directly to me email@example.com I will then keep a note of the rooms and liaise directly with the Oak Tree. I can also ‘pair up’ single people who are happy to share a twin room. Just let me know.
The hotel has only agreed to keep the rooms booked on a provisional basis for a week (Friday 28th October 2011), so the sooner people let me know the better.
The rates shown below are per room per night for bed and breakfast. First come first served!
11 twin rooms @ £37.50 per room per night
7 double rooms @ £37.50 per room per night
4 deluxe doubles @ £50.00 per room per night
2 bunk (sleep 4 in each) £60.00 per room per night
1 family room ( quad ) @ £60.00 per room per night
1 family room (double room and twin room adjoining with 1 en-suite) @ £60.00 per room per night
1 family room (double room and adjoining bunk bed room with 1 en-suite) @ £60.00 per room per night
Update on Monday 21st November 2011 ....
