What can LEI do better?

Or are we as good as we can get? We need everyone’s ideas.

We need your thoughts, ideas and gripes about LEI’s activities, including club nights, summer league, main fixtures, social, coaching, newsletters, website etc.

  1. What do you not want to change or be lost?
  2. What would increase your enjoyment and/or participation?

Please answer these questions online, or if you prefer, download a pdf copy.

The club aims to increase participation and attract new members. As most people learn about orienteering via word of mouth, improving our own experience of the sport is the best place to start. The results of this survey will be ready for discussion at the AGM on 26 Oct.

Peter Palmer Relay Success

LEI Juniors once again put in strong performances at the Peter Palmer Junior Team Relays. After a long journey south to Lancing Rings our juniors started racing at 5am. After over three hours running the first LEI team to finish came in third place just four seconds behind second place. Meanwhile our younger team came in a few minutes later in 5th overall but was the first younger team to finish so LEI retained the Joan George trophy. These are LEI’s best ever results in this competition.
