Lunch time and socialising

The plan is to have lunch on top of a hill in the middle of the field with a good view of a short sprint course around the hill. Hopefully there will be some people with energy to burn who will provide the entertainment for the rest of us. If the weather is not kind we would move to a nearby wood where we can put up tarps for shelter.
