SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Williamson Park Results

The results from the event on 7th October are here. It was great to see so many of you there today, especially as many had also been to the event before at Happy Mount Park. And you all seemed to be having a great time, despite the fact that it was a bit damp at times and certainly wet off of the paths. My thanks to all the helpers who worked hard to make the event go so well.
Alongside the results, on the results tab, you will see colour standard times. If you finish inside the colour standard time at 3 events you can claim a cloth badge, different ones for each colour course. This is a great way to work your way through the courses, and improve your orienteering abilities. The badges cost £1.50 each and you can get them from me, just by stating the 3 events. There are now colour times up for Happy Mount Park too, so you may only need one more!
Schools league scores will be updated and published on the website over the next couple of days. Looking at the results, you can see that competition for both the Primary and Secondary prizes is hotting up!

The final event to count is at Eaves Wood, Silverdale on Saturday 11th November – put it in your diary now and make sure, if you are part of a school, that you get a good turnout!

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Schools League scores

Here are the scores for the Lancaster and District Schools League after the first of the three events in the series. In the Primary section Christchurch have taken a narrow lead over over the winners of the April Schools Challenge winners, Bolton-le-Sands, but there are many points for all schools to claim over the next two events.
In the Secondary section, Lancaster Girls Grammar are out on their own – but there could be other senior schools at the next events!
There were a number of school age entrants who had no school declared There is still time to update these before or at the next event, so it's possible that the Happy Mount Park scores will be revised.
Well done to all concerned! Make sure you all bring reinforcements from your schools to the next event at Williamson Park on 7th October, where the competition will be sure to hot up!

Updates of schools of entrants to me please,

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Happy Mount Park Results

Well done to all of you who came and by the looks of it enjoyed yourselves! Many of you did more than one course, including Micah who did all 5 courses!
For those of you competing in the schools league, points will be put up over the next day or so. A number of juniors did not declare a school on their registration slip, and if this was an error please email me on with your name and school and I will update the results and allocate you points in the league. If parents ran by themselves on a course you can also score, so let me know which school. To view the results click here.

With so many people doing more than one course, I fear that we may have lost the results for just a few people on their 2nd or subsequent runs – the software or we got confused. I am really sorry about this, but it wont affect the schools scoring. We have defined a better system for the next event at Williamson Park, Lancaster, which is on Saturday 7th October – see you there! And bring more friends and family – we can cope! Martyn Roome
