Hi Haren, no problem re guiding. Yes we should probably have a practice. Would you be able to latish on Sat June 10 afternoon, say 5pm at the lido? We could do a few laps of the lido and then run round the park. Let me know if this suits. I am away the following weekend but could do a week day evening or early morning f this Sat doesn't work. Best, Charles
