Chasers at WMOC 2016

Congratulations to Bob Dredge, on a fantastic 13th place in the M65 Sprint A Final at the World Masters Orienteering Champs. In what looks to have been a very busy Tallinn in Estonia, Bob was just 1 minute 33 seconds off the pace in a field of around 330.  WMOC consists of a sprint qualification race and final, followed later in the week by the long qualification races and final.  Well done Bob!

Chasers at Croeso 2016

Day 3 Margam Forest - IainLast week saw around 30 Chasers in South Wales for Croeso 2016, the 5-day orienteering festival held every 4 years. This year had 4 races close to Bridgend (2 in the sand dunes of Kenfig and 2 in the woods of Margam) and one on the moorlands above Tredegar.  We had a great week, which even 2 days of rain couldn’t dampen, with good orienteering challenges, pretty good underfoot conditions and good organisation from an army of volunteers.  There were a lot of great performances, with an overall podium position for Iain Stamp who came 2nd on M35L – well done Iain!  Other overall top ten’s were:
3rd – M45S Neil Pollitt
4th – W35S Claire Stamp, W45S Tracy Craig, W55S Christine Collins
6th – M14B George Hughes, M18L Matt Hartland, M65L Bob Dredge, W45S Alison Yeates, W60L Carol Dredge
9th – W18L Gemma Cairns-Smith
10th – W18L Holly Hughes
Special mention should also go to the 3 Chasers who won individual days – Iain Stamp on day 2, Bob Dredge on day 3 and Tracy Craig on day 1.
See you all in Scotland for next year’s 6-day…..
