SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) New BOF survey about orienteering competitions

Those who are not regular visitors to the British Orienteering website may not know about the survey added recently. The Board are looking to get your feedback and opinions about current orienteering competitions, why you enter some and not others, how far you will travel, whether you like to compete against everyone on a course or against your friends or age group, do you like relays or is your preference for individual competitions? And would you like more inter-club competition?

The North West Junior Squad will be at Whitbarrow selling soup, sandwiches, tea and coffee and, of course, cakes to raise funds for the squad, so please come and support them! The weather is likely to be sunny but cold, so what better than a hot cup of soup or a hot drink and a snack after your run?

Subscribers to the national orienteering magazine CompassSport will have been greeted by the smiling face of SROC junior Ben Selby as they bent to pick up the latest edition from the doormat. We'll forgive Ben for running in his Fredrikstad top since we do have a special relationship with that Norwegian club. This set us wondering how many other SROC members have featured on the cover of this magazine over the years. We can think of a couple, but why not join this discussion on the message board and fill in the blanks for us.

In the excitement of being chased by vampires and toasting marshmallows several people managed to leave something behind at Eaves Wood. If you are missing a grey thinsulate hat, a yellow torch with "Crosscrake, Burton" label, a child's black cape with yellow bats on it or a pink Eurohike headtorch, contact Martyn Roome, to arrange collection.
