CompassSport Cup Heat 15th March

Good news!  You can now sign up for the CompassSport Cup on 15th March 2020 at Aspley Heath, near Milton Keynes.  LEI are offering 50 free places as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations, so sign up soon!

Click  HERE to sign up via an entry form for LEI members.  Places are limited, and the deadline is 29th Feb.  We are able to sign up non-competitive entries on competition courses (i.e. on orange, green but NOT white, yellow or light green).

The heat is being hosted by South Midlands Orienteering Club. Please visit their website for the latest information on the event.  http://www.smoc.info/Fixtures/2020/2020Aspley.htm

IMPORTANT Please note that there is a participant limit for the competition area.  If the limit is reached through CompassSport Cup pre-entries, entry on the day will not go ahead.  That affects the non-CSC courses from yellow to light green.  Availability can only be confirmed at a later date, once entries close, so please factor this into your planning for the day.  LEI may also be limited on how many participants we can pre-enter for the CSC.   Any entries we receive over the limit will be put onto a reserve list.

If you have any questions, please email Esther Revell, the Club captain, forestcorner.2010@gmail.com.
