Claro 2016/17 Club League Results

Following the Killinghall Moor event last Wednesday, the club league is now complete. We had 54 club members participate so check out the summary to see who our new champion is!
As a reminder, there were 7 qualifying events, and the best 5 were used to work out who won using the handicap rules.

Club Picnic – Saturday 1st July

This Year’s club picnic will be held at the top end of Valley Gardens off Harlow Moor Drive, our organiser Stephen Fry.
There will be orienteering from midday:
A short course 1.1km suitable for all ages.
A longer course 2.9km that crosses roads so only suitable for 16+.
A map memory course available for all.

As usual, please bring some food to share along with chairs / mats – and hopefully suncream!

What’s next?

Well done to all those who ventured off to the British Champs, Top 10’s for Ruth and Liz in the individual completion on Saturday.

On a slightly smaller scale, next Saturday (13th May)  we have a Junior event with registration from 2:00 – 3:00 pm. There are White to Long Orange courses. It is open to more than Juniors if you fancy a 3.2km long orange?

Closely following this, we have the Wednesday evening spring event at Conyngham Hall. Use the links on the right hand side for event details.

Lindley Moor on 26th March had wonderful weather. The event ran smoothly – allowing the Controller and Planner to sit back and enjoy the sunshine. Results now published.
Our next level C event is the Wetherby Urban on 28th May
– a newly mapped area.
There are a number of level D events to keep you occupied in the meantime, including the postponed last “Winter” event this Wednesday evening (29th March).

Events Update

Wednesday evening had a good turnout – actually 13, but 12 runners as there were only 12 maps were available. David Day kindly gave up his map and went straight to the Pub!
Steve Fry was victorious – have a look at the results  from the Winter home page .

Don’t forget the Junior League at Killinghall Moor  this Saturday. Courses up to Long Orange.

 

Winter LampO Series Started

A blustery/chilly January evening for the first Winter Lamp-O. Competitors rolled up fairly close to the start, so with 5 minutes to go numbers looked light but soon increased – all met enthusiastically by Ewan handing out maps and control cards. Tim Evans a clear winner, but very tight for second place – check out the results here.
Next event on 25th Jan in Knaresborough, final start location will be published soon.

 

AUTUMN STREET-O LATEST

The Autumn street (Lamp-O) penultimate event was held from the Empress on Wednesday evening. The conditions were good for mid November, and  Linda introduced a new twist of post boxes scoring double points that increased the route choice conundrum – the top 6 placed competitors had visited all 6 of them.

The temptation to gather some controls around Starbeck – and misjudging the time to get back up the hill to the finish, led to me being 50sec late back. Caitlin missed the 45minute cut-off by just 2 seconds, but fortunately didn’t impact on her well earned 3rd place.

Try a trickier night challenge at Hookstone this Saturday.
