BORDER LINERS EASTER EGG-O
open from 31st March to end April

DETAILS (PDF)

EGGSTRA INFORMATION!

Some of you may not have done an EggO, so here is some extra information:

The Egg O is a low key affair, using open access areas so no need for landowners permission, fees etc.

You’re looking for controls which are tent poles with yogurt pots taped on top.

Directions to the next control are written as a 6 figure grid reference and a description. So a pencil or marker could be useful.

The controls are deliberately inconspicuous but should be on easily identified features.

Last control has chocolate.

You may be the only person out and following the route, so look after yourself.

On a good day the views are excellent.

Enquiries, feedback etc to Gary
