Welcome to the SINS 2017 website.

After developing and coordinating the SINS events for a number of years both Eric Brown and Richard Lewis have decided to relinquish their roles as the coordinators for SINS.

We feel sure that you will all join us in thanking Eric and Richard for all their hard work on SINS over the last few years.

Steve Bramwell (HOC) and Andy Clough(WRE) have now taken on the roles of joint coordinators going forward.

A number of the wooded areas used at previous SINS are no longer available to us in May due to the landowners’ apparent change of policy on enhanced environmental protection grounds.

In 2017 Day 1 will be on the Long Mynd (just West of Church Stretton) which has been used for orienteering events previously but not for SINS.

Day 2 was going to be on a new area, Caer Caradoc and Hope Bowdler ( just east of Church Stretton) and all the courses had been planned, however at the end of January one of the farmers withdrew his permission to use his land. We are now exploring alternatives and will update the website as soon as this is resolved.

The third day will use the mixed terrain at Brampton Bryan.

Day 2 and Day 3 will form part of the 2017 UK Orienteering League.

As ever putting on the family friendly SINS event is a team effort with many people already engaged in the preparations for what we believe will be another enjoyable event.

Please watch this space for further details which will be added to the website over the next few weeks.
