Well done to all who have qualified for a mug!

Mugs/Prizes for the YHOA Superleague 2017, YHOA Urban League 2017, will be available for winners, seconds and thirds in each class of the leagues.  Mugs are only going to Orienteers from YHOA clubs who have completed at least 2 league events.  The full list of winners is on www.yhoa.org.uk

There will be a table near registration/download where those entitled to mugs should check in so that we know who is there to receive them.
