Welcome!


The RSGB are hosting three days of open ARDF competition in the spring of 2019. There will be Sprint, Foxoring, 2m and 80m Classic ARDF Courses


Note: We call it a "Championship" but really it is just a low key, small scale radio navigation exercise.  So if you have been to the Region 1 or World Championships - its not like that at all.



The events will be located in near to High Wycombe - venues less than one hour London Heathrow Airport.



We are taking expressions of interest and even entries. Please register your interest now by emailing the organiser on...

Given prior notice we may be able to organise transport to and from the competition forests to local hotels or rail/bus stations. This is not guaranteed. Please contact the organiser to discuss well in advance of the event.




Accommodation

As is standard GB practice competitors will be responsible for their own accommodation arrangements.

There are plenty of hotels! Chains such as PREMIER INN, TRAVELODGE offer good deals if you book early.

You will also find caravan and camping sites close by.

Contribution

These are solely to cover costs and contribute to the equipment replacement fund (in the event a transmitter or SI box go missing or are vandalised).  There are access fees to pay to landowners and a contribution to the local orienteering club (TVOC) for use of their maps.

Race to get your entry in first...



Day 1: £10 senior and £5 junior
Day 2: £10 senior and £5 junior
Day 3: £5 senior  and £3 junior (this covers both Sprint and FoxOring)

So £25 / £13 for all three days.

There will be a reduced contribution for Junior competitors.
