Black Forest Club new date update

1pm sunday 2nd Dec. Going is GOOD TO SOFT.

All main routes into the course are clear but avoid Kennford/kenn to the course through the backs lanes if you want to keep your car clean!!  The best way in for people who are travelling down motorway from north of Exeter is stay on the M5 to the end ,then join A38. As you pass Kennford on your left take the A380 towards Torquay,at the top of long hill take 1st left. The course will be sign posted from here.The main entrance is on the B3381. EX6 8HR. This is the best route in for everyone especially horseboxes!
