Historically, attendance at the Army Individual Orienteering Championships has been particularly low each year. Had the event taken place this year, only 18 runners would have competed, which included only 1 female and no novices. There were a few late attendance requests but this would only have grown numbers by 3.
As a result, at a recent meeting of the AOA Executive Committee, it was decided to incorporate the individual championships into the Inter Corps competition each November and a proposal that develops this strand is attached.
You are invited to review the attachment and provide any feedback to the AOA Secretary, preferably before the end of June to facilitate further consideration and support implementation this November.
It is proposed in the short term to reschedule this year’s cancelled event in to an existing MLS fixture in the near future and once confirmed, the details will be promulgated through this site.
