WARRIOR BATTLEAXE evening events May 2014

This popular series of Wednesday evening informal score events is at a time of year when the woods are at their best.

Suitable for families, beginners and orienteers of all abilities. There's plenty of help available if you're new to orienteering.

The format is simple - get as many controls as you can out of a possible total of 20 in one hour. Each control is worth 10 points, but there is a penalty of 5 points for each minute you are late back after the hour. Beware - its easy to try to get too many and find you don't have enough time to get back without a penalty.

All events are on Wednesday evenings with starts between 6 and 7 pm. Courses close 8pm. Check here just before the events as minor details may change at last minute. Cost £5 / £2

There are three events this year, ALL three scores count towards a final total.

MACMILLAN ORIENTEERING Wed Evening 28th May
WAROC / LOC BISHOP WOODS

An event in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Please come along and support this very worthy charity!
Thanks to Graythwaite Estates for coming up with this great area at short notice.

Parking in the usual field at Eel House, 4km south of Hawkshead at SD368939. SD368939

Suitable for all abilities.

Mass start 18.15. 15 mins to start. Courses close 19.30.

£5/2 per person.

LONG: 3 loops of about 1.5km with some splitting.

SHORT: 2 loops with some easier (orange standard) control sites.

You can choose to run either course as a relay team of 2 or 3. If you dont want to take part in the mass start you can start when you want.

Martin has explained " I may have given the impression that the Macmillan event on 28th is a team relay - it isn't - its a mass start with 3 loops, the same person running all 3 loops, making a total of about 4km (however it can be run as a relay if people don't want to do all 3 loops themselves). Hope that's a bit clearer!

Entry-on-the-day but if possible let me know you are coming by ticking a list at the Battleaxe events. Large groups email martinbagness@aol.com

Helpers: there will be some jobs going – parking bucket, reg, changeover, control collecting. Most crucially Sport Ident. Please let me know if you can do one of these. Does anyone want to raise extra funds by selling tea / cakes etc?

Macmillan Cancer Support provides every kind of help for the victims of cancer and their families, including the excellent Macmillan Nurses. More on the charity, including how to make donations, at www.macmillan.org.uk

No dogs allowed on the area.

All walls and fences must be crossed at stiles or gates. Please be back by 19.30.
