Scotland Vets Selection Policy for VHI 2018
VHI South Wales, 29-30 Sept
The VHI is taking place in South Wales this year. If anyone would like to be considered please get in touch with me.
In 2018 the Scotland team for the Veteran Home Internationals 1 will be
selected using the results of the following races, and other current form:
- JK Middle, 31st March (Brereton Spurs, WMOA)
- JK Long, 1st April (Beaudesert, WMOA)
- SO League, 8th April (Linn of Tummell, ESOC)
- Northern Champs, 22nd April (Wass, EBOR)
- British Champs, 19th May (Balmoral, MAROC)
- Scottish Champs, 26th May (Achagour, INVOC)
Orienteers need to compete in at least two of these races to be considered. Greater weight will be given to the results of the Scottish and British Champs.
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.
