Baswich Night-O Results

Christine planned Thursday’s night-O around Baswich. Congratulations to Simon for yet another win, he got 24 controls not 23 as he thought on the night.   Overall with 3 races to go only Kelvin has a realistic chance of snatching a dramatic victory away from Simon but Captain Ray’s money is firmly backing Simon.

Second place however is wide open. For a moment Ray thought he’d leapt up to joint second only for Kelvin to leapfrog over Jon and Ray into second place. Jon, Ray and Kelvin plus Andy are all still vying for second and third place.

Top lady has reverted to Christine after planning the course last night. Can she hold off Cath? Will Beth or Rachel get 7 runs in and disturb the status quo?

Three exciting races to go……

Club accommodation for JK and BOC

JKBOC

Accommodation for all club members and their families for both JK (annual orienteering festival over the Easter weekend, next year in South Wales) and the British Orienteering Championships (at the end of May/beginning of June – the last weekend of the spring half term). The orienteering will be on open moorland areas, with courses suitable for all ages, abilities and levels of experience. There are 36 beds in the Station House at Talybont-on-Usk, and 50 in 2 buildings at Hawkhirst, Kielder (one, large child-friendly building and one smaller, adults-only building).

Please contact Cath for further details and to book your bed.

If there are remaining beds available they will be opened up to non-Chasers to keep the costs as low as possible.

 

Chasers junior camp

dsc_00138 hardy juniors survived Kelvins snoring to enjoy a fun but challenging training camp on the Derbyshire moorlands. While Esther and Mary built up their confidence ready to race white courses independently, Alfie, Charlie, Henry, Adam, Holly and Holly learned lots about contours, compass bearings and pacing. They all enjoyed racing through the terrain, and, as usual, the highlight for most was the nightO under clear skies more or less from the front door.

Many thanks to Kelvin (I think), Simon Webb and Matt Mardling for all their help, and Ian & Judith Hughes for control hanging/collecting – we couldn’t have done it without you!!

MoonJohn Robinson planned Thursday’s night-O on a new area in Huntington.  A first win of the season went to Andy Yeates followed by Rachel F-R on her home patch.  Only 4 events to go and all to play for….
