SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Wellington Wood Summer Sprint series event

This evening's event in Wellington Wood, near Dolphinholme, saw the wood in perfect condition for orienteering. Julian Lailey had set challenging courses where lapses of concentration were paid for in seconds lost, resluting in places lost too. Results may be viewed here. (For the Score course results, click on Prologue). RouteGadget is available, either for Prologue & Score or Final.

The British long and relay champs took place this weekend in the South East. A contingent of SROC members made the trip and the stand out result in the long was Lucie Todhunter's 1st place in W40L. Congrstulations to her! Top ten places went to Finlay Johnson (4th M20E), Mike Johnson (6th M60L), David Rosen (9th M65S), Martyn Rooms (9th M70L), Julian Lailey (6th M75L), Maisie Todhunter (4th W10A) and Sue Roome (10th W70L). In Sunday's relays the leading SROC teams were the Men's Short team of Alex and Tom Matthew and James Todhunter and the M/W70 team of Martyn Roome, Miriam Rosen and Paul Ferguson. Both teams gained bronze medals. Full results here.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Sizergh Spring Series event

The Sizergh event went ahead in pleasant sunny conditions today. A good mix of beginners and experienced orienteers enjoyed their courses. Unfortunately the event was marred by one unidentified  competitor who decided to take a short cut over a wall (marked with a purple line as uncrossable) near the start. We hope this thoughtless action has not prevented us from being able to use this area in the future. Please, always take note of markings depicting out of bounds areas and uncrossable features. Results are posted here, and RouteGadget is here. Lost property: a blue hooded top, size medium, left in the download tent.

Many thanks to all those who came and ran on what turned out to be a disappointingly damp evening and especially those who were able to collect their prizes. However I think a good time was had by all and this series finished with a very pleasant evening in a pub which treated us well. The results for this event are here and RouteGadget can be found here. So you can put your torches, reflective bibs and pencils away until October and yes we do already have a full series for 2022/23. Thanks to the many who have supported the events over the series and hope you will be able to take part in the next one. Bob
