New for 2019 - The East Anglian Region is setting up an urban league. This will work in a similar way to the EA League which generally involves cross country orienteering events.
And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
