Hope to make this. For anyone who hasn't heard of Lough Boora, it's where part of the IMM 2017 bid film was made that so many of us took part in as part of the IMOC's effort to secure the IMM for Ireland back in 2015 in Lithuania. Club members from all around Ireland converged on Co. Offaly to do their bit to secure the IMM bid. We even had a BINI in the video.

Here's the video for anyone not familiar with it:

Great run yesterday. 10 Minis turned out in total. The roads were atrocious, the directions were useless but the craic, the company, and the weather were great. The concensus was that the roads used yesterday should never be used on an IMOC event ever again!!!

Lough Boora was excellent and has expanded its facilities and walks since the IMM video was shot there back in 2015. I'll definitely go back there again.

Well done all.
