New Area for PreO on Day 2

New Area for PreO on Day 2

Permission to use Frith Hill for the PreO on Day 2 has been withdrawn, due to the far greater buying power of a Netflix film set (“Cursed”).  Subject to final Natural England permissions (as it is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI)), the PreO has been moved to Mytchett.  Although still adjacent to the Middle area, it is a rather longer walk (2km) from the Event Centre or a short (4km, max 15 min) drive.  Directions will be provided in the Final Details.  Inconvenience to competitors is regretted, as much as it is for event planning.  The benefit is that Mytchett is a better PreO area.
