Just arrived via Sientries from the Pathfinder organiser :

"I would like to express my thanks for your interest and continued support of our event.

Unfortunately, it is with a great deal of sadness, that after 32 years of running this event we have made the decision to cancel it. The reasons behind this is spiralling costs of running a scout group, lack of interest in the event year on year and dwindling support for running the event.

We plan to refund all entry fee's through the SI Entries card payment system. Once I have received confirmation that this has been processed we will send out another e-mail advising you of this.

Again, I would personally like to thank every entrant who has ever taken part in this event - I can honestly say there isn't a year gone by where I haven't loved every minute.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the cancellation this event.

Kind Regards

Paul McGee "

A shame another event has bitten the dust - use it or lose it . Ian

Thanks for confirming that Mike I'll look for something Else to do , what a shame so many events are falling with lack of support , if we all marshalled one event a year maybe things would be easier for organisers

Marked as cancelled on the list of challenge events on this website and a copy of the announcement dated 25/9 has been shared to LDWA Facebook page. They say, "If you have already entered, I will be in touch over the next couple of days once I have figured out the most appropriate method of refunding entrance fees."
