LEI Events in December

Regretfully the Club has decided, that given the current situation with Covid 19, to cancel the LEI events that where scheduled for December.
There are two reasons for the cancellation:

Firstly, the advice from BOF in relation to Tier 3. “people are advised not to travel into or out of tier 3 areas (very high alert) in order to participate or volunteer in an orienteering activity or event”

Secondly, the possibility of damage to the reputation of the club, in the light of the current restrictions. Given that most of our forest/park areas are currently being very heavily used by the general public, putting on an event and adding extra pressure to car parking etc could well draw criticism that may well appear in the media. We need to remember that we are not just a group of friends out for a run or walk but an organised club that is part of a national organisation.

We will review the situation in a couple of weeks. However, we feel that it is unlikely that we will return to organising events whilst most of the East Midlands and surrounding areas remain in Tier 3. It’s unlikely that the two events in the first half of January will go ahead.

EMOA Championships 2020

In view of the restrictions, relating to COVID-19, put in place this evening (31st October) by the Government, LEI are looking to reschedule the East Midlands Championships.

We have put a temporary stop on entries. This will be removed when we have arranged a new date. We will be emailing those who have already entered with the new arrangements as soon as we have more details.

Given the breaking news this morning (Saturday 31st) that the Government is considering a new national lockdown, LEI are requesting that orienteers delay their entries until after Monday when the situation may become clearer.
