Returning to Competitive Orienteering (Again!)

It is hoped that the club will restart competitive events after Easter.

The first event that is planned is an EMOA League Event at Bagworth Heath on Sunday 25th April. This should be followed by the first Summer League Event on 27th April.

The restart is conditional on further guidance from the Government via British Orienteering and the availability of permission from landowners. It is likely that there will be a number of changes to the Summer League programme as we progress through the summer.

The Bagworth event will have a limit of 150. It will be pre-entry only via Fabian4. Initially places will be restricted to EMOA members only.

At present we only have volunteers for 7 of the 17 Summer League events. If you have not already volunteered please do so. Without event officials for the remaining Summer League events, they will not be able to take place.

We should have further information on the restart by Easter. I will update the website and Facebook pages as soon as possible.
