6 BHSI’s and 14 guests were given the chance at Burghley to walk the xc course with Eric Smiley FBHS. As always Eric kept us entertained with various tales from years gone by. Beyond the stories there is a great depth of knowledge that Eric is very good at putting across especially when talking about times/speed and where you should be on the course to stay up on the clock (which no one was able to do this year).
There were many relevant questions and discussions throughout the walk including why to have knot in your reins and how to tie it using a shoelace!!!!!
Our thanks as always goes to Eric for his time, knowledge and enthusiasm.
