& FUTURE VENUES - A PRIZE FOR THE BEST LEAD!
of you have already contacted us since the
event but we would welcome additional comments
regarding the format and style of the event.
It is really important to me that the event
should remain innovative, exciting and provide
fresh experiences each year. Ideally, I
would like competitors to feel inspired
by the event and to look forward to the
weekend with anticipation as it approaches.
It is our aim to provide a mountain marathon
for connoisseurs with the most challenging
courses and the finest venues. This can
only be achieved by limiting the numbers
to a sensible limit of 500 teams. Above
that size, we feel that our options would
be severely limited as the local infrastructure
is put under too much pressure. Inevitably
the first concession we would have to make
is the quality of the venue.
would like to place the ball back in your
court. If you know an area of the Scottish
Highlands that you feel would provide scope
for a good event and would cope with up
to 500 pairs, please contact us with your
proposal. Better still, if you are acquainted
with contact/s on the ground such as Landowners,
Factors or Stalkers and could provide us
with an introduction we would be especially
pleased to hear from you. The most helpful
suggestion will be rewarded with a free
entry to the LAMM in a future year. I would
like to thank everyone who suggested locations
for LAMM 2001 and especially Wendy Dodds
who wins a free entry for mentioning Ardverikie
estate to me a few years ago and helping
to sew the seeds of an idea.
