Several weeks ago a proposal for a revised format to the Army Team Champs was posted. After very little feedback a further revision is attached for comment or suggestions.

The AOA Chairman requests that all Army orienteers review the proposal and if there are any comments or suggestions that they are passed to Maj Bernie Fowler the AOA Secretary at by 31 Aug 16.  This will allow us plenty of time for any further revision if required in order to ensure the event organisers have plenty of time to start planning.

Many Thanks
