Blawith and Subberthwaite Commons, 22 March 2015

I may be biased but I reckon that was an excellent event - classic long distance orienteering on highly technical Lakeland fells, giving an opportunity for M21s and W21s to really test themselves on M/W21E type courses, and for everyone else to follow exhausted in their wake doing longer courses than they are used to. Proper orienteering!

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Results from the Prizegiving at Fulwood

On what was a very pleasant night the final event of the series was the mass start 1 hour event, followed by the prize giving. We were very pleased to welcome Dave Simpson, who was a founding member of SROC, to present the prizes. The results from the event can be found here along with details of of the class winners. There are tables comparing the effect of no multiplier, the 'normal' Age Multiplier and the special Prize Giving Multiplier, it is this one which is important. This gives us Jill Cochrane as the winner and congratulations go to her. This event marks the end of the series but we already have 10 organisers and venues for 2015-16 so put the dates in your diary and be there - Bob

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Night Street League finale and prize giving

The ever popular SROC Street League ended the 2014-15 season last night with the now traditional mass start handicap event, this time on the area surrounding the Anderton Arms, Fulwood. Series supremo Bob Nash pulled off another great event and organised a swift prize giving afterwards. We were honoured to have Dave Simpson to present the awards. Dave joined the South Ribble Fell and Mountain Rescue Team, from a fell walking background, in the early 60's and then was present when they formed SROC in Dec '64.  He is 80 this year and now cycles and until recently was still fell walking. Our photo (credit: John Britton) shows Quentin Harding receiving his Preston Guild Trophy from Dave. Quentin also collected the first male and overall trophies. First female was Karen Nash, best newcomers were Mary-Kate Kidd and Luigi Lerose and top pair Tracey Peters and Steve Mclean. Josh Sammon won best under 18. Handicap winner on the night was Jill Cochrane. More of John's photos in the Gallery.
