Just a note to say that EMEWS 252 has been published and I have attempted to mail it to all but have had many problems in attempting to do so.  10Mb file and 150 recipients.

I suggest you have a look at the EMOA website to down load a copy if it has not come through on email.   It was not actually posted when I looked but I presume it will be soon.

Midland Championships 26th October

Due to the size of the area it has not been possible to plan Elite courses, which for M21E requires a winning time of 90-100mins, without sending people into areas of significant bracken and undergrowth which have grown over the Summer. Therefore, it has been decided not to have Elite courses, but to have Long courses that use just the runnable and technical parts of the area. This decision has been agreed with the BOF Events and Competitions Committee.
