The North West Night League has once again been sponsored by Bright Bike Lights. Details of this season's events are on this pdf. First event in the series is our own at Traitor's Gill on 24th November.
This years Spook O hailed a number of firsts: first event on a new map and new area, first time mid week, first use of SI for this event. Despite the damp conditions a good number of family groups and a few seasoned orienteers showed up ready for the mass start at Silverhelme Scout Camp. The mainly wooded area was tricky with all the paths obscured by fallen leaves, but the trickiest part was avoiding the roving vampire (Mark Edwards) who could put a hex on you, only to be lifted by a visit to the wise wizard (Quentin Harding)! A complicated rocks and crags control choice added to the fun, and mapper and planner Julian Lailey was congratulated for his efforts. The winner managed to get all controls within the allotted time and scooped the top prize. Other prizes were awarded for first family and best costume. Results are here.
SROC laid on a special sprint event in Williamson Park on Tuesday 30th October, following a request from a group of Scandinavians who are taking part in an O tour. SROC members were also invited, but unfortunately the main contingent of visitors were delayed and only an advance party were able to compete. Results may be viewed here.

The OMM regularly attracts a strong contingent of orienteers, including a number from SROC. This year's event in the Howgills experienced some wet weather on day two but nothing to stop father and daughter pairing of Quentin and Zoe Harding winning the D class by an impressive margin. Rowena Browne and Karen Nash repeated their success of the last few years with first female veterans on class B, also 2nd vets and 14th overall on that course.
