Our first venture down south for an Open5. We are visiting the picturesque location of the Quantocks for the 4th event in the series. This area rightly earned the status of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1956.
The planner for this event is 2010 Open24 planner, Andy Wilson. He is just itching to get the Open5 contingent into the West Country to show what this area has to offer.
2011/12 Haglöfs Open5 events:
Categories - Each Open5 event has five entry categories; 2 solo categories (Male and Female) and 3 pairs categories (Male, Female and Mixed).
