A number of members expressed interest in Commissaire and/or Derny Pilot Training. With a view to organising this we have contacted Paul Watson and Dave Urquhart. Both of them said they could make themselves available in the first quarter of 2016.
If you are interested in acquiring the skills for either of these disciplines please let us know . Please use the contact form located here: <contact form>. These training courses will only be run if there is a sufficient number of people interested.
