SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Beacon Fell Night Event on 15 December

Full details are on the fixture list, but remember the early start times: 5.30pm to 6.30pm. For newcomers to night O, this is a good area on which to start. The event is being organised with minimal person-power. If you are able to give a bit of help (e.g. at Registration or collecting controls) Glenys would like to hear from you.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Routegadget for Leyland Street League 4

RouteGadget is now ready for you to add your routes for Wednesday's street event. We are trying a slightly different way of setting up the event this time, which considerably reduces the time taken to set up but requires a little more effort from you, the users! All you have to do extra is to type in your name and time taken, when prompted. The drawing of your route works exactly the same. Any problems should be emailed to Chris Roberts

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Top performances from SROC members at VHI and BSOC

The weekend of 17&18 November saw two major competitions held at opposite ends of the UK. The Veteran Home International at Pitlochry was won by England, including SROC stars Julian Lailey 1st M60 and Quentin Harding 2nd M45. Full results are here. Meanwhile in Dorset the British Schools Orienteering Championship was beset by bad weather, and results are still provisional on Sunday evening. There were some strong performances by SROC juniors and Chris Nash won B8 running 5.4 mins/km! Katrin Harding finished 2nd in G10, Zoe Harding was 4th in G8 and John Ockenden was 4th in B9. There was also a World Schools selection race on Saturday, in which Matt Nash finished 5th on M14 and Katrin and Zoe were 2nd and 4th respectively on W14, so perhaps we may look forward to sending some club members to the World Schools next year (in Scotland). BSOC results are here, or view the BSOA website.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Compass Sport Cup 2008

The Compass Sport Cup (inter club competition) is taking place early in 2008! The event will be held at Frodsham Hill, Cheshire, on Sunday 13th January. The key to winning is to get the maximum number of club members out, so the club needs YOU. Based on our 2007 performance, we have a good chance of making it through to the final if we can secure a good turn out.
It is hoped to organise a minibus for the day at a reasonable cost. Please let Sarah Watkins know if you would be interested in using the minibus by Monday 19th November. Also contact Sarah to let her know whether you want to be entered for the event.
