The dates and format for the Spring-O series have been agreed. There will be 6 events on Wednesday evenings at parkland venues in and around Harrogate. Each one will have a longer course, an intermediate course and a beginners course using proper orienteering maps and electronic timing for start and finish. New this year is that there will be some training activity beforehand, specifically for juniors to follow on from schools events, but for adults of any standard too. Full details will be posted here for each event.
For now, we need volunteers for planners. Full help service provided. Contact Richard or Graham for more.

The league will be scored differently using a similar system to that used by SEOA. It uses the concept of a target time for each class with points awarded based on how you perform in comparison. The full details will be posted on a new YHOA website shortly, but for now we have been sent details here.
Happy New Year!
