SROC is hosting the Northern Nights at Nicky Nook on Saturday 17th February 2018. As well as determining the Northern Night champions this event will also be a counter in the North West Night League. Quentin Harding is Planner, controlled by Miriam Rosen so we can expect an excellent event. The event has its own page on this website, which will be updated as more details become known. Pre-entries are encouraged and will open on Fabian4 soon.

Following on from Thornton it could only be a drier event last night, it turned out to be a mild and mainly dry night that provided some good street leaguing. Thanks to Ray and his wife for putting on the event. RouteGadget is live now here, results will follow soon.

Results for Wednesday's epic street league event at Thornton are on line here. If you were not one of the 39 hardy souls taking part then these comments from organisers Bill and Dawn may help to explain why we use the expression "epic":

'Thank you all for disregarding the horrendous weather and travelling to Thornton for the event. The reward for your determination was having beaten the elements to experience one of the most remarkable street-Os ever run! Some of you reported on running knee and even thigh deep through the floods and our favourite among the many comments made was "I would never have thought one of my most memorable orienteering events would be a street-O".'

On to the next event at Kirkham & Wesham - details here.

Following the Eaves Wood event on Saturday 11th November the final league scores are available here. There was fierce competition from a record number of schools, but eventually we have the two winners. Christchurch C of E Primary School, Lancaster are the winners of the Primary League, with St Wilfrids C of E, Halton in second and Moorside Primary, Lancaster in a very creditable third.
In the Secondary League Lancaster Royal Grammar School were first (following their success earlier in the year in the Orienteering Challenge Trophy) with Lancaster Girls' Grammar second and Ripley St Thomas third.
Very many congratulations, not only to the winners but to all schools and everyone who took part.
For those who took part and want more orienteering see the fixtures tab of this website (note that the fun New Year Cracker on 1st January is also in Eaves Wood!) and the British Orienteering event diary.
