Regretfully due to planned forestry operations we have had to cancel the upcoming Autumn Trophy event at Kilbroney in Rostrevor. These operations mean that it is not possible to run any courses above an orange standard. This is very disappointing especially for Michael Burton who has already been hard at work planning the courses, but unfortunately it was unavoidable.  Plans are underway to try to re-schedule an Autumn Trophy event to another date and venue (probably Nov 30/Dec 1, as this is the only weekend with no NI orienteering before the end of the year).

WEE 5 WEE7 swap

Just a quick reminder to all that the venues for WEE 5 & 7 have swapped. Stormont for No.5 on the 5th June and UUJ for No.7 on the 19th. The more observant will have noticed this change was put up on the BOF (and hence master calendar) and the WEE website some time ago, but I somehow missed the LVO web page fixture list. Apologies from your Fixtures Sec 🙁
