1. a spreadsheet of names (column 1 should have names e.g. John Smith and Rachel Jones; column 3 should have the school; column 4 should have the course chosen)
Limited changes will be possible on the day but the more accurate you can be, the easier it is to keep things running smoothly.
2. the contact mobile number of the person in charge on the day
3. the time that you would like to start at

Cheques should be made out to Waterford Orienteering club and may be brought on the day of the event. No cash can be collected in the Castle grounds on this occasion.
