The slalom site is on the River Devon between Fishcross and Alva (Map OS Reference is NS894960). If coming from Alva on the A91, turn right once you have left Alva (signposted Fishcross). The slalom site is on the left hand side with the entrance set back of the road before the slalom site. If coming from Kincardine Bridge, follow signs for Sterling Mills on the A908 but turn left at Fishcross onto the B9140 and then first right signposted for the Equestrian Centre. If using SATNAV, use postcode FK10 3AW (This is on the other side of the river but within sight of the slalom site). It is also now on Google Maps!!
There is camping in the field (£2.50 per person per night). For those not camping, parking is £1 to help cover the costs of the toilets. There is a water supply and there will be toilet facilities.
Please park cars on perimeter of field and leave space in the middle for the kids to play.
There will be a cafe serving food, drinks and cakes from 10am onwards. First Aid available during competition times.
