Winters Events Update – next event at Ripon on Saturday 13th November

There are 5 events planned for our winter league, and the first one is in Ripon on Saturday 13th November. Online entry open now.

Winter FlierThere will be five events, as follows:

  • 13th November – South Lodge, nr Ripon
  • 11th December – Harrogate
  • 22nd January – Thornton Watlass
  • February – TBC Knaresborough or York
  • 12 March – Cullingworth nr Keighley

Full details in the flier-NYMBO Winter 2021-22 v3– which will be updated as the events are confirmed

A few things to note about the winter series:

  • All events will be online entry only with no entry on the day. This has worked really well over the past year, so we will keep this in place. It really helps to have contact details for everyone in case of late changes or if the venue needs to know who attended.
  • Online entry deadline is midnight Thursday to guarantee a map. We’ve extended this by an extra day as there’s no entry on the day.
  • No specific start times – we did this last winter as a result of pandemic rules, but we won’t do that this winter. Start time is anytime between 0930 – 1030.
  • All events will use MapRun – this has worked reasonably well over the summer and offer more versatility for winter events rather than the treasure hunt format (although it is a little sad to see that go aftre all these years). Please get in touch if that presents a problem and we’ll try to help (We will have a spare phone available). Some events may also have treasure hunt clues as well

MapRunwe’ve created a new MapRun FAQ page – this consolidates all the information from over the summer and hopefully answers all the key opints. If something is missing, or isn’t clear, please leave a comment on the page.

Feedback always welcome, hope to see you at one of the winter events!

    Hi
    Thanks for organising, should be quite a few of us coming over from Ilkley ICC.
    Just a point, the MAPRUN file names are not clear, any chance you could add in at least the month or the winter series number to the file names please, makes it clearer – like the Markington file name.

    cheers colin

    Colin, thanks for this comment , the Ripon file is already up as South lodge , but I will look into this most of the long name is the code that tells Maprun about the course, my view is that you as users don’t need to see this but I have free choice over the first bit, I may create sub folders so we have winter 2021/2 and Summer 2022
