Explore the city of Ripon by lamplight. Mass start at 6:30pm Wednesday 24th October. Hopefully the traffic won’t be as bad as getting to Knaresborough Castle for the last event… see you there.
Join us in Knaresborough for the Wednesday evening Lamp-O just after sunset (great views from the Castle hopefully). Don’t forget a torch / high-vis clothing (both essential), and enough cash for a beer afterwards in the Cross Keys (optional). Link from the side bar on the right or here. The car park is free after 18:00 , there is other parking nearby if full.
This fine and sunny Wednesday evening, why not have a go at the last of this year’s Spring O events. Use the link at the side for details.
Claro Junior League Event Cancelled
Unfortunately due to a clash with another event also taking place in Valley Gardens on Saturday we have reluctantly decided to cancel this Saturday’s event . We are looking to reschedule the final event in conjunction with the Junior league prize giving at the club picnic on the 7th July.
It may still feel a bit arctic, but the crocuses are well out on The Stray and British Summer Time is finally here. So, almost, is Spring-O! Be prepared to run through the proverbial dappled woods and then relax in a local hostelry with a cooling drink. Details are available here.
Well done to Matthew Rochester for a successful debut as Lampo planner last night. An excellent turnout – probably not far off a record. Results are now up. One more to go for this series, and the first time we have done a Lampo in Pateley Bridge, so don’t miss it.
Unfortunately it has become necessary to cancel the planned Regional Event at Guisecliff on Sunday 4 Mar 18 due to the prevailing weather conditions. The decision was made because it is considered that it would not be possible to run a fair or safe competition. Thanks to those officials who have already put in a lot of time and effort into this event.
Continuing the excellent series of Claro Lamp Os for winter 2018, this next one will be based at The Park (at the beginning of Hornbeam Park, Harrogate). Lots of parking available. Drinks and food in The Park afterwards. Meet 6.15 for 6.30 mass start.
The 1:5000 map ensures a clean-sweep will be achievable by all prepared to break into a sweat. For those who wish to remain fresh-smelling for the pub, the vast majority of controls will be in the Hornbeam Park area itself enabling lots of lamppost-bagging without undue effort.
Decent weather guaranteed. Bring a head torch, something to write with, a hi-viz garment and a mature companion if you are under 16.
We look forward to seeing you there. Ruth (Planner) and Tamsin (on-the-day Organiser)
The full results have been published for Swinsty-Beecroft, have a look here. Great weather for the event, parking was difficult as the day also brought out a lot of visitors. Some good results for Claro with Alex Robinson first on the Green (and quickly reaching the Racing Challenge Silver award) followed by Matthew Rochester in 2nd. Also Luke Parker 3rd on Brown with some good competition.
Lost property? – Check out the organisers comments.
Ready for more? this Saturday afternoon is the second of our level D Junior League events. Full SI punching with White to Long Orange. (You don’t have to be a Junior to have a go). Check out the event page here. The ground is quite wet and slippery in places – so bring suitable footwear (and maybe a change of clothes).
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!
