The Winter Events are a renaming of last year’s 215 series and will run from September to April, following the same format. Many people were unhappy with last years title as it wasn’t very descriptive, so after many hours of committee drinking time, the new name was coined, to be hopefully more descriptive. (Pedants, among you, need not point out that it neither starts nor finishes in Winter).
The aim is to have one Orienteering event on the North bank and one on the South Bank each month. (This in addition to the weekly club nights at Beverley and Grimsby). Therefore in the months without a Sunday event, there will be a Saturday Winter Event. In general they will run from 1pm to 3pm and will feature White, Yellow and Orange standard courses (junior beginners through to adult beginners) in addition to a technical course. Thus the events will cater for beginners, improvers as well as experienced orienteers. What more could one ask for?
