EM League Final Table 2012

Please check the tables carefully to ensure you have points for each event that you attended. (You will only appear in the tables once you have competed at two events at the same level.) Remember, the computer does not recognise Sam Smith RAFO M8 as being the same as Samuel Smith LOG M10, even if they are the same person, and the organiser does not accept any responsibility for missing points if you have not used the same details at each event.

Please contact me at or 01509 412132 if you have any queries about the League.

The prize-giving will be at Charnwood Forest South on 20th January 2013 at 10am. If you are in the top three on your course and can not attend, please ask someone else to collect your prize on your behalf.

A Happy New Orienteering Year to Everyone
