UK 2001 C/L Contest Calendar

The intention is to keep this list as complete and up to date as possible, so your notification of future events is welcome.
Last up-dated 19/09/01. Dave Day dd@iroquois.free-online.co.uk

The current epidemic of Foot & Mouth in the UK is increasing and it is inevitable that some of the following events will be cancelled. This makes it important to check with the contact before travelling. The BMFA has a mailing list which will keep you informed of the situation.
