Problems at the Spring Cottage Event

Regretfully a rather good event has been tarnished by the actions of a few orienteers.

After the event we received a formal complaint from a landowner regarding orienteers crossing land that was clearly marked as private and being asked by the land owner to leave.
The area concerned was around a private dwelling.
The landowner has also informed me that two orienteers used foul and abusive language to him.
Not only are these orienteers in breach of the rules of the sport they have done considerable damage to the reputation of the sport in the area, which will almost certainly have a knock-on effect when we use the area again.
I am currently in the process of trying to identify those orienteers involved, in particular the two that used foul and abusive language to the landowner, with a view to asking, in that particular case, the Federation to bring a charge of bringing the sport into disrepute.

Car Parking at the Bradgate Regional Event 25th November 2018

The recent bad weather has meant that the overflow car parking that we normally use is not available.
Car Parking will be on the main car park at Hunts Hill. Please obtain your Car Park voucher from registration. Please do not buy a car parking ticket from the machines as that will cost you an additional £1
