SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League plaudits

This has been another excellent year of Street-Orienteering with enjoyable and competitive events and lots of good socials afterwards thanks to the efficient and imaginative organization by Bob Nash.   The Awards evening proved especially pleasant and the handmade plaques to all the winners showed that a lot of thought and effort had gone in to the presentation.
Many thanks from all league competitors to Bob and Karen for providing such a memorable way to spend winter evenings - it's what lightens the dark dreary winter months and what many of us will be looking forward to next October.
