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.
