FOOT & MOUTH PRECAUTIONS
We are very
fortunate to be able to hold the event
In consultation with the estates
we have agreed the following preventative
measures that you must adhere to without fail.
EVERYONE: Wash and scrub dirt off all footwear being worn or
brought to the event
IF YOU COMING FROM A LOCATION WHICH HAS HAD AN OUTBREAK IN
THE VICINITY SINCE 15TH MAY:
Wear clean clothes, shower and wash hair before setting off
Find a car wash north of a line from Glasgow -> Edinburgh and use a power
wash, concentrating on the underside of
the car and wheel arches. Dirty cars may not be allowed onto the estate!
IF YOU ARE BRINGING A TENT USED IN THE UK SINCE 13TH
FEBRUARY: Sponge the groundsheet with a fairly dilute disinfectant and then rinse
When you arrive at the Event Centre, look out for and park near the

sell out, a mail order list will be compiled

your entry forms you have indicated that
about 80 of you would like bunkhouse accommodation
for £12 per person – breakfast not included.
We only have space for about 40 people
and places will be allocated on a first
come, first served basis. To be
on the safe side it is best to come to
the event equipped to camp at the Event
Centre if all the accommodation is taken.
To take advantage of the accommodation
both team members must come to the Information
Desk at registration together to request
and pay for accommodation. There
will be a walk of approx. 1KM from where
you park your car, so you’ll need to be
able to carry all your kit in a rucksack.
TAKING THE COACH FROM INVERNESS OR GLASGOW TO THE LAMM
you have already notified us of your wish
to join a coach for transport from Inverness
Airport or Glasgow Bus Station/Airport
on the Friday afternoon/evening, your
name should now be listed on the LAMM
web site. We will be providing full details of how the
transport will work by 12th
June and these will be sent to those without
access to the web site. It is not too late to take up this offer, but
please return the Coach Booking form (sent
out with the entry form or accessible
on the web site) to us as soon as possible. Coach ‘managers’ will try to ensure that connections
are kept with late-running trains, coaches
and flights, so long as we are made aware
that people are arriving on them.
CAN YOU HELP?
almost have enough helpers now.
However, if you are thinking of
coming to the event but are not competing,
and would be willing to work hard at parking,
registration, marshalling competitors,
the starts, finishes, and the mid-camp,
please telephone us on the number below no later than 7th June. We would prefer helpers who can commit
to helping from Friday afternoon and for
the whole weekend.
