SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League tables published

With only one more event to go, at Lancaster, Quentin can still be equalled in the Gross category. Karen looks to have tied up 1st lady in Gross and 1st in the Age Adjusted but a number of the minor places are still up for grabs as is the Pairs in both categories. Please check your scores, especially the discards and don't forget your scores may well affect your handicap for the Leyland event. As a point of interest Lytham saw the 100th competitor for this series.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Street League prize presentation VIP guest

Founder member Ann Clarke is to be our guest of honour at the street O prize presentation on Wednesday 14th March at Leyland. Ann and late husband Lol Clarke were amongst the twenty founder members of SROC when the club was formed on 4th December 1964. Ann supported Lol in the club and event organisation for many years in those early days. Although not a particularly keen competitor herself, she was always around doing essential jobs and helping to get things done. Dick Collins will do an introduction prior to the presentation. Founder member Maurice Dean will be present and we are hoping that Roy Woodcock, club historian and author of 'The History of South Ribble Orienteering Club-The First Thirty Years' will also be able to join us.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Lytham Street League 22nd February - results

Congratulations to Steve Lang who had a storming run and despite incurring some time penalties not only won the Tower Trophy but also won the night's event outright. Well done. I will get the league tables out asap but I am away this weekend orienteering in the deep south. Please check the tables carefully as I know of two mistakes that I need to rectify - apologies to those concerned. Results are here.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Latest Street League tables after event 8

After the latest round at Eccleston things are hotting up at the top of both tables. Quentin already has the 'perfect score' of 500 in the Gross but Steve can catch him by winning at both Lytham and Lancaster - now there's a challenge! In the Age Adjusted Karen will be going for the 'perfect score' at both Lytham and Lancaster but can still be caught by Quentin. Matters are close with the pairs in both categories as are the minor placings, so much will be decided at the last two events and don't forget these results could affect your handicap at Event 11.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Duxbury Score event Saturday 4th February

Many thanks to all those who braved the less than clement weather to take part at Duxbury and especially those who gave up their time to help me. Whilst there were not large numbers all who took part expressed their enjoyment with the courses on offer and the increased 'runnability' of the area, much more fun than it used to be. A special note for Mark Edwards who 'inadvertently "fell" into the river and then found himself on the other bank!' and to Paddy Walsh who decided that the uncrossable marsh could be crossed only to discover that the mapper was right after all. Bob Nash
Results are available here, and RouteGadget for the event is here.

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) New way to access fixtures information

Regular readers of Nopesport, the on-line orienteering forum, may have seen this post earlier today. Following those instructions we have created a link for all SROC events and activities, all international and level A events, all level B from NWOA and YHOA, all level C from NWOA and level D's from our neighbouring clubs, in the next 30 days. This will update automatically as the BOF fixtures database changes over time. Please only click on this link if you are interested in evaluating this facility. Any general feedback would be best directed to Nopesport, but specific feedback on usefulness as an addition to (or replacement for?) our fixtures page to please.
