SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) The Club's best orienteer?

Readers of the latest edition of CompassSport, the orienteering magazine, may have noticed an article by Dave Nevell where he calculates the country's top 100 orienteers by normalising their ranking scores by age and gender. In other words, he figures out what their potential score would be if everyone were a 28 year old male! There are three SROC members in the list: Karen Nash is our top orienteer in 31st place, followed by Julian Lailey in 54th and Quentin Harding in 57th.

Club Equipment Officer Peter Knott asks: Could members please check to see if they have any club equipment in their house, shed or garage etc and contact me re returning it to our equipment garage. This is urgent for both the forthcoming Lakes 5 Days and the need to do an updated inventory for insurance purposes. Among the things we are short of are reflective yellow jackets, pin punches, bunged canes and A4 map bags, but this is not a full list. Tel: 01772 683072 Email:

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Compass Sport Cup - Your Club Needs You (again!)

As you may recall the original CSC had to be cancelled due to the snow earlier this year. The first round is to be held at Formby on September 12th 2010 (see MEROC website for details) Hopefully the weather will be better and as long as sea levels don't rise dramatically it should take place! With the summer holidays fast approaching I need to know who would like to enter as part of the SROC team. I will be at the Lakes 5 Days but it may be quicker to email me. I am waiting for more details and will pass them on as soon as I get them. Mark (club captain).

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Your club needs your old dibber!

If you have upgraded or are considering doing so please can the club buy your old dibber / SI card? We always need more to hire and are prepared to pay £10. You would need to de-register it first, but that is easy to do when you register your new one. If you wish to do so please contact Bob Nash or the club official manning the download at the next event.
