JK 2022 on SiEntries

Update report by Andy Yeates, JK 2022 Coordinator 

Andy Yeates, JK 2022 Coordinator, says:  "The past few weeks have been fraught.  We finally gave up on Merthyr Mawr as a viable option when we were refused permission to park next to the area.  This marked the fifth area we tried for, but couldn’t get permission for. Clydach Terrace was suggested as a replacement and the Day 2 Officials sprang into action and very quickly put together a plan for holding Day 2 there.  It looks like there will have to be a short bus ride, but we are now back on track."  

Areas for the JK 2022 are now:

Day 1 – Swansea University (Sprint)

Day 2 – Clydach Terrace (Middle)

Day 3 – Pwll Du (Long)

Day 4 – Caerwent (Relay)

Entries will open on 5 December 2021 via SiEntries here and information for the JK 2022 website will be updated as soon as possible here.

Andy Yeates, continues:  "The Welsh Orienteering Association is very proud to be delivering JK 2022. However, we are well aware it is a major undertaking for any region, and particularly so for us with one of the smallest regional memberships in the country. To deliver a successful event we expect to need the majority of members in our own clubs to help out (on multiple days), but also depend on some volunteers from outside the region to offer support on a day."

Being a volunteer at a major event like the JK brings many benefits:

  • £5 meal/traders voucher for each day/shift you work (2 hours or more).
  • Chance to help stage a premier UK event and learn how it all fits together - especially for future major event organisers.
  • Be part of a team, make new friends, meet other orienteers from around the UK.

If you are able to help in any capacity, please indicate which days you are willing to help when you enter via SiEntries.  Thank you.
