Event Safety Workshop – 26 Oct 2018

Dear Colleagues

As you are all aware, it’s now a British Orienteering requirement, as insisted on by their insurers, that all major event officials complete the Event Safety Workshop. This applies primarily to Planners, Organisers and Controllers but others, such as Team Leaders, are encouraged to attend as well. If officials don’t attend the course then technically our events are not covered by BOF insurance so it’s not an option, other than for you not to undertake a major role. We cannot – and I believe, should not – make any exceptions as we can all benefit from regularly reviewing our practices and learning from each other.

Club Champs 2018

This year the trophies will be decided at the Compass Sport Cup Final. The oracle has divulged his best guess of your estimated running times here . Instead of using these to try to achieve a mass finish as we usually would, the Chris Yardley and Judy Buckley trophies will be awarded to the man and woman who beat their target times by the largest margin, which has the same effect. The Chris Bourne and Karen Jackson trophies will be awarded as usual to the fastest male and female runs on the day. The Lithuanian trophy will be awarded to the best performance by a club junior.
Trophies will be awarded at the club tea/supper after the Alfreton Park event on Saturday 27th October.
