The street orienteering league, comprising ten events at fortnightly intervals plus a series finale event, returns for the 2017-2018 season starting on Wednesday 25th October. These events are great for winter training and are very sociable occasions with most being held from a pub or similar, The first event is based at the Brook Tavern in Plunginton (Preston) with a newly mapped area. This pub doesn't normally do food in the evenings but we have been offered a choice of lasagne or veggie lasagne at around £2,50 a head. Pre-orders for food please direct to Karen Nash.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Summer Sprint Series final table and league winners

Thanks to those who travelled west to Blackpool to take part in the fifth and final event of the Summer Sprint series. The wet weather of the earlier part of the day cleared leaving us with a warm, humid but dry evening. The low number of entrants meant that high points scores were available to the competitors and many league places changed, most notably M(Open) and MV55+ league leaders. 

League Series winners : M(Open) Finlay Johnson, W(Open) Jane Anthony, VM55+ Paul Turner, VW55+ Miriam Rosen, JW14- Cate Matthew, JM14- not awarded.

Total number of series competitors : 82. Thanks to all who took part and a big thank you to Luigi Lerose / Jane Anthony, Mike Johnson, Chris Roberts and Julian Lailey for organising / planning the series events and to their on-the-day helpers.

Ray Pickett, Series Coordinator
