Club Picnic Results

Somehow the weather held fair for our picnic and in the space of two hours we ran an orienteering event, held the junior league series prize giving, had a picnic and played a game of rounders.

Well done to all who took part, here are the Results of the orienteering. The results of eating all that food  and the outcome of the rounders match will remain unpublished.  Quentin

Dob Park technical challenge – what’s next?

We were blessed with cool but dry conditions on Sunday. Dob Park wood was the driest we have ever used it, along with the vegetation still being down, great conditions. Favourable comments received thanks, one of which from a Green course competitor “sustained technical difficulty which we rarely see around here”. We had more competitors than ever attended at Dob Park, maybe we underestimated the attraction of the Snowden Crags extension, but in any case our apologies to those who had to wait for recycled maps.
