SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Request for helpers

On the evening of Wednesday 27th June at Beacon Fell Country Park we are putting on the annual Scout & Guide Orienteering Championships. If this year proves as popular as previous years then we could have upwards of 100 youngsters (and some oldsters) taking part. Karen and I would therefore be very grateful for any help people can give. If you can spare the time then please contact us on nash.family@talktalk.net or 01772 721573. There is the usual range of courses for the youngsters plus two technical courses for those who wish to have a run.
Many thanks in anticipation - Bob & Karen

SROCkite.gif (2521 bytes) Summer Sprints - latest scores

With three events gone, two to go and your best three scores to count, the latest league tables are interesting reading! Mark Edwards maintains his overall lead but both Luigi Lerose and David Thomas have a win and a second place from their two events so that could change next time. Jo Matthew moves into first place in Open Women and Alex and Cate Matthew remain in charge of the junior classes. Meanwhile, to prove age is no barrier to success, the M55+ category is lead by a M65 ahead of a M75! (Paul Ferguson and Peter Marett). Jane Anthony has consolidated her lead in W55+. The penultimate event is on Tuesday 19th June at Cottam, Preston.
