LAMM 2002 - Final Details

This Supplements the Event Details


ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE VENUE This will take place at 15:00hrs on Thursday 13th June and for those who don't want to camp at the Event Centre we will list some useful telephone numbers and websites to help locate accommodation.

EVENT T & SWEAT SHIRTS, ALSO DRYFLO This year we will offer another eye-catching design created by Stuart Brown of Kendal and printed onto iris tee shirts and lead sweat shirts. The garments will be the same price as last year - tees are £10 and the sweats are £16. In addition we will also provide a special edition Lowe Alpine Dryflo tee shirt bearing the LAMM 2002 logo on the shoulder. These will be available in blue heather (particularly for the ladies) and also in orion at a very attractive price of £16.

The garments can be purchased during the weekend in the marquee and should these sell out, a mail order list will be compiled and items despatched by the end of July.

HIRING A CAR The web page "Share Car Hire" is now active at and will help you to share any seats in a hire car with those who you never knew were on the same flight as you. Visit the page now if you want to share the hire of a car.

ARRIVING AT THE LAMM When you park at the event location those arriving first will in general park furthest away but there will be a temporary parking area fro those heading off to accommodation. Be prepared to carry your kit to the Event Centre & camping area in a rucksack. The route will be dry and a maximum of 1.5KM, all depending on where you are parked. Wilfs will be present to feed you and Compass Point will provide kit for the event. Sorry - no dogs are permitted at the event.

SPORTident SI Card We will be using the SPORTident system again this year. Those who are hiring an SI Card will receive one card per team at registration while those of you who are using your own must present it at registration so that we can confirm the card number. Your Si Card will be attached loosely to your wrist using a tamper proof wrist strap. This will remain attached all weekend and be cut off you either when you finish or if you retire. If you lose or take a hire card home with you the charge will be £17.50. This is one reason why we are now using these wristbands for non-orienteering events of more than 2 hours duration. Also you will quickly get used to carrying the card on your wrist. Wrists do swell during exercise and providing you have attached the card loosely, you will hardly notice that you are wearing overnight.

SATURDAY MORNING A very early start for many but we think you will feel it's worth it. The recommendation is to carry some breakfast and drink with you on the way to the start. If you are not staying at the Event Centre on Friday night your start won't be quite so early.

THE EVENT Maps (2 per team) are 31x27 inches and will be handed out on the way to the start. Maps are not waterproof so please ensure that you take a 24x18inch map bag with you and if the weather is really bad we suggest that you save one map for use on the second day. Also carry some money with you (a note) in case you get stranded miles from the Event Centre.

MERCHANDISE 18"x24" map bags, red fine waterproof pens, midge repellent, Blizzard Packs, videos of Jura 1997, the handbook "Mountain Navigation For Runners" by Martin Bagness (at a special event price of £4) and maps from previous events. Additional maps from LAMM 2002 may also be purchased at the end of the event.
