Julie's looked after the admin since the GBC started, has run the Event Control Team, and provided the catering for many years.  With GBC growing and going into multi seasons Julie has passed over some of these tasks as she can't do it all, but is still heavily involved in the management team and hosting of the GBC events.

Nick Collins

Nick joined the team in 2014, starting with computerising event registration, timings and results.   Nick now works with Glen plotting new  routes, creating GPX formats and the new instruction route guides along with putting event signage out the night before each event, and co-Directing the events.
