Help FERMO – NI Sprint and Middle Distance Championships

The hard working team at FERMO will really appreciate your letting them know you are competing at the NI Sprint and Middle Distance Championships this Saturday, 12th May. A post on their website http://fermoblog.wordpress.com/2018/04/30/ni-sprint-and-middle-distance-championships/ explains how to contact them and what they would like to know (see the “Registration” section).

Planner for WEE 5 in Lady Dixon Park, 30th May

Hi folks We don’t have a planner for WEE 5 in Lady Dixon Park on 30th May, so as things stand we will just be re-cycling an old course. However, if you’ve had a sneaking feeling you’d like to have a go at this course planning lark, Richard Williamson (a very experienced Planner) has offered to mentor somebody who would like to have a go. Email secretary@lvo.org.uk or volunteer@lvo.org.uk or ring 078 1587 2010 if you’re tempted, but do it soon! Happy orienteering. Cecil
