Congratulations to our two teams on outstanding performances on Sunday. Fantastic Foxes came 3rd overall and (because of the complex competition rules) 2nd in the main competition for the Peter Palmer Trophy. Flying Foxes came 5th out of the 22 teams taking part. This was a high quality performance against teams with several of the tops juniors in the country taking part.
Thanks to all the LEI members who turned out to help, especially Tracey and Andy for masterminding all the catering. Andy must be in line for the LEI golden pinny award!

Please note that the Memorial Hall Car Park just off Stamford Street in Glenfield will not be available to orienteers as there are events taking place at both the Memorial Hall and the Parish Offices. Stamford Street Car Park (the location of event registration) if fairly small and will not accommodate everybody. Please use nearby streets for parking. Please park with consideration for the residents of the area.
A change of venue for this event. Because of the high vegetation levels in most of our areas the Score Cup 2016 has now been moved to Glenfield Village and will be an urban based event. Details are on the link from the fixtures bar.
The main score course will be available to all junior who are M/W10 and above. There will be a short course for under 10’s and it is recommended that given that it is an urban environment that under 10’s are shadowed. Please note there will be no toilets at this event.
