South Ribble M21 Mark Saunders carried off the Battleaxe Trophy at a prize-giving ceremony this evening, held after the final event in Warrior OC's ever popular score orienteering series. Several other SROC members were in close contention for one or other of the prizes. Mark said "this is my proudest moment. I'm sick of coming second! I wouldn't be orienteering today if South Ribble hadn't made me so welcome." Results are available from the Warrior website.
Everyone enjoyed the score event put on by Julian Lailey at Wellington Wood. Unlike conventional score events all points scored from odd numbered controls had to be done before accumulating from even numbered controls, the even numbered controls being worth more points. Results can be found here.

There are a further five events on consecutive Tuesdays, including 22nd June at Eaves, organised by our club president Peter Knott. They are all two hour score events and you don't need a special bike to compete. More details of all the events, entry forms and results on the Wheelbase website.

With the Tuesday evening sessions at Ripley School temporarily suspended for the exam season we have instead a series of events of varying formats spread over several Tuesdays in May, June & July. The first is in Wellington Wood on 25th May, a small but interesting patch of woodland near Lancaster, little used for many years apart from the club Handicap last year.

We have just received permission to share it in this way; sorry for the delay.

The 3rd event in the Series is at Yarrow Valley. If you came last time in March then you may think you know the area but we have something different for you this time, you will visit other parts of the park. The courses are different and the Technical course has a twist in it.
