2005 Dates, Event Sponsorship and Final 2004 Roundup
Sunday 5th December 2004
It's time to
think ahead to LAMM 2005. It will take place on 18/19 th June 2005,
the same weekend as last year. As usual, the venue will be a fine
and undisclosed location in keeping with the Connoisseurs Mountain
Marathon! I can tell you that this year we will be further south
than Glencarron 2004. We like to hold a "far north" and
a "not so far north"event on alternate years, always in
a classic part of the Scottish Highlands. Our planner for 2005 is
Andy Creber, well known to MMers as both a planner and competitor.
He planned for us at Spittal O'Glenshee 2003.
News From Lowe Alpine
We are delighted to be able to announce another three years of LAMM
sponsorship from Lowe Alpine and this secures the event for the
foreseeable future. Lowe Alpine has been a great sponsor ever since
the first event at Arrochar in 1994. Many thanks from the organisers
and competitors alike for a top commitment to people, enjoying competition
in the outdoors.
More Information About the LAMM?
Please take a look at all the online 2004 information - Event Details
& Final Details, Best Routes & Results, Control Descriptions,
Galleries and Reports/Feedback from Glencarron. This should give
you a flavour of the event and help you to choose the best course
for your team.
Entry to the event is online only at www.lamm.co.uk
and from approximately the end of January. Please ensure you have
joined the LAMM email mailing list so that we can tell you when
entries are being taken. The LAMM following is so faithful that
the 2004 event filled, even in the far north of Scotland. We would
strongly recommend a very early commitment this year to avoid disappointment.
We will save a few slots to allow late entries for Elite and A teams.

the evil conditions on LAMM Saturday.
2004 Tees and Car Stickers
We still have a few Dryzone Tees and maps available, which will
make excellent Christmas stocking fillers and you can purchase these
online. We have zillions of 2004 and 2003 LAMM car stickers. Just
send an SAE to LAMM Car Stickers, Sleagill Head Farm, SLEAGILL,
PENRITH CA10 3HD.
