JK2022 will be in South Wales at Easter 2022. Many of the roles required to stage this event are already filled and the event has a very experienced overall coordinator in Andy Yeates from Walton Chasers. The team are looking for a non-SI equipment coordinator – take a look at the role description to see if you fancy taking on this role.
Keep your fingers, toes and compasses crossed – the first four events in the Midlands have made it into the diary. First up are Potteries Orienteering Club, with a local event planned for Ladderedge on the 24th April. Walton Chasers have just secured permission to run an event at Shoal Hills the following day. And for the late May Bank Holiday the Springtime in Shropshire team (Wrekin and Harlequins) have permission for back-to-back events on the Saturday and Sunday. These are on the neighbouring areas of Corndon Hill and Rorrington & Stapley.
As always, these are all subect to the rules and guidance at the time of the event.
