Attack Point out today

Today, Wed 21 Dec, I have sent out the December edition of Attack Point via email along with details of the Club Champs and Annual Dinner info.  Could you let me know if you haven’t received a copy or if you’ve received it twice or are having problems opening any of the documents.  This is the first edition to go out since Kerina has handed over to myself and Carley and would like to make sure everybody is being kept informed of what’s going on.
Thank you for your assistance – Tracy Craig 

WM League this weekend

This weekend sees the last West Midland League event of the year at Hawkbatch – details here.

Alternatively, how about reccy-ing the Mungo Bone route before the day (24th Dec).  Run the route, then let Ray know your time so that he can do more accurate handicap times.  Details (and map) here

Winter Score League

It’s very close at the top of the table now.
Remember only 5 runs to count so some people will begin to drop the lowest score.
5 events completed, 4 to go…….next event is at the Collins’ house on December 8th.

Saturday Series

A series of events for beginners & Chasers (landowner restrictions) is set to start this weekend, with fortnightly events throughout the winter season. Based on the popular summer Tuesday evening format, there will be a white/yellow, orange and “blue with a cut-off option” courses available. Maps will be pre-marked, & SI punching will be used. So, you can put off your Christmas shopping a little longer & get a regular orienteering fix instead!
