Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships.



6pm Thursday & results are now sorted thanks to Robin Strain's support. The problem lay within the Condes planning file which, for reasons unknown created the Medium & Long Courses but didn't include either Start or Finish.

My thanks to Gerry & Fredrik for their help & a big welcome to the many new orienteers who turned up. Your support is very much appreciated.
