N. Birmingham Scatter Rally

Post lockdown the North Birmingham Section organised a navigational scatter rally.  This enabled riders to get out and remain socially distanced. All information was by email with a virtual sign on, checkpoints/landmarks were located by OS reference and postcodes.

Thanks to the North Birmingham Section for organising this event. Mick Leach.

Mick has supplied the photographs below two of which were the answers to the questions to be answered at the checkpoint.  Eddy
