Provisional Details for SINS 2021

With the Covid 19 situation improving we are hopeful that we will be able to hold orienteering events over the traditional SINS weekend of the late May Bank Holiday.

Obviously this will be subject to the restrictions / guidance in place at the time.

Planning is proceeding on the following basis.

Our current plan is to hold 2 events rather than the normal 3.

Saturday 29th May would be on Corndon Hill with Sunday 30th May on the adjacent Stapeley / Rorrington.

These are located 5 miles North of Bishops Castle.

Car parking would be in the same field for both days.

A potential problem is that the England / Wales border bisects the area with Corndon and the car parking field in Wales and Stapeley / Rorrington in England.

So both the English and Welsh restrictions will have to permit the events for them to proceed.

The events will be Level C with 8 colour coded courses. Entry will be online to enable us to control the number of entrants in accordance with any restrictions / guidance applicable at the time.

The Midland Area Long Distance Championships were due to be incorporated into day 2 of SINS and we are investigating whether this can still be accommodated. However this will require a number of relaxations to the BOF rules for Area Championships.

We will provide a further update in approx. 2 weeks time around the 31st March.
