Southdown Event, Sunday Oct 5th

Southdowns Orienteers are staging  a level-C event at Rewell near Arundel on Sunday 5th October.

For the Brown, Blue and Green courses a special 1:5000 map is being printed on the reverse of the 1:10000 map where Kenny Leitch has planned a superb technical finish in the tricky quarry area. There is also a spectator control near to Assembly to add to the fun!

Entries on fabian4  will be open until Friday evening. EOD according to map availability.


HH Club Championships 2014

Please keep you diaries free for the HH Club Championships 2014.  This will be held at the WAOC event on December 7th at Maulden Woods.  WAOC have kindly confirmed that they will print additional maps for the champs courses, but please do try to get there at a reasonable hour as there is always a risk that maps will run out at a Level C event.

Details of the event are at http://www.waoc.org.uk/n.humphries/waoc/details/2014-12-07-Maulden.php

Welcome to the 2014-15 Hertfordshire Youth Orienteering League

As in previous years, the league will run over the winter, based on the HH Saturday Series. The scoring events are listed below. There have been a couple of significant rule changes:

  • Firstly, we have introduced the opportunity to earn joker points if an individual attends a non-schools league HH events or a level C events run by any club. Up to 2 sets of Joker points can be earned and these are doubled if the competitor also joins HH. These will not count towards a Group’s score. The motivation is to encourage youth league competitors to make the transition to Sunday events and encourage individual HH membership.
  • Secondly, shadowing is now allowed on Yellow and Orange. The rules contain a definition of shadowing making it is clear that it is just for safety and to prevent distress if the competitor becomes seriously lost. If direct assistance is given the competitor should be non-competitive.  


St Albans City Race – postponed

Because of difficulties in obtaining the necessary permissions to stage the event,  this year’s City Race has been postponed.  It had been planned for October 12th.

We hope that it can be rescheduled for next year, once these issues have been resolved.
