VHI 2016 – Vets Selection Policy
In 2016 the England team for the Veteran Home Internationals will be selected using the results of the following races:
|Midland Champs||Sunday 28th Feb||Sherwood (NOC)|
|JK Individual 1||Saturday 26th March||Wass (YHOA)|
|JK Individual 2||Sunday 27th March||Kilnsey (YHOA)|
|Northern Champs||Sunday 17th April||Mulgrave Woods (CLOK)|
|British Champs||Saturday 30th April||Brown Clee (WMOA)|
|British Middle-Distance Champs||Sunday 12th June||Leith Hill (SEOA)|
Orienteers need to compete in at least two of these races to be considered. Greater weight will be given to the results of the JK and BOC.
If competitors run up then their results will be taken into account on a minutes/km basis.
On occasions a competitor may be recovering from injury or illness, and know beforehand that he/she may not perform well in a selection race. In such circumstance, the competitor should let a selector know in advance together with their wishes regarding the inclusion of their result for selection purposes.
In general a ‘retired’ or ‘disqualified’ will be taken to be the equivalent of a very poor run: those wishing to be selected should take every precaution to avoid mispunching in a selection race.
Selectors: Jackie Hallett (BOK), Andy Hemsted (HOC, Chair), Tim Tett (SYO)
