The Ecclesall Weekend - 25th / 26th November
Over the weekend of the 25th & 26th November, SYO are putting on 2 fantastic events in Ecclesall Woods. It is an ancient woodland offering super orienteering.
On Saturday 25th November there is a night event with starts between 5.30pm & 7pm. There are 4 courses on offer including a novice course for less experienced orienteers. Juniors are welcome, although inexperienced juniors should be shadowed. Parking, registration, start & finish are all on Whirlowdale Road. Full Details here.
The night event is followed by a regional day event on Sunday 26th November with starts between 10.30am and 12.30pm. Parking is in Millhouses south car park, along with registration and a free fun matrix course for children. The start & finish are approximately 500m away. There are the full range of colour-coded courses from white to brown, including a 5km long orange ideal for adult newcomers and improvers and a very short green for experienced orienteers wanting only a short distance. Full details here.
The organiser still requires a number of volunteers for both events. Helpers receive a 50% discount on their entry. Please email Lucy by Monday 20th November if you are able to help.
Additionally, the planner requires somebody to put out the yellow & white controls on Sunday morning. There are 10 controls over 2km to put out by 9.30am. You would remain competitive on any courses green and above as it is in a different part of the area. Please email Colin Drury if you can help.
