2017 News

Off-Road Driving Course - 28th May, 9-16.30

The Branch has been working in partnership with the Coniston Off-Road Training Team, who are based near Skipton in North Yorkshire. Together we have designed a bespoke driving skills course to provide members with an opportunity to become proficient whilst driving “off-road” in a safe and controlled manner. Each delegate, on successful completion of the course will receive a British Off Road Driving Association (BORDA) certificate.

Dress code is smart but casual with appropriate foul weather clothing and footwear. There will be a ratio of 2:1 with an instructor. A variety of different vehicles will be available for use, all-inclusive in the fee, but delegates may use their own vehicle if they wish.

Cost of the Course is £245 (incl. VAT) per candidate and this includes the cost of the Certificate administration.

The venue, The Coniston Hotel Country Estate and Spa is located just off the A65 outside of Skipton and is approx. 45 minutes from Leeds and Manchester. Anyone wishing to bring wives / husbands / partners may do so and make use of the hotels facilities.

Game Tasting Evening

To make it easier to source game for the Evening the event has been moved to the end of the game season in 2017. Details will be in DEER and on the web page nearer the time.

S.L.D.M.G. "Young Stalkers Day"

This is a popular and well attended event that is a superb opportunity for all to meet up and have a great day out. There will be a B.B.Q. plus trade stands and demonstrations. As last year it will be held at Graythwaite Hall.
