We've still got 3 Park-O events to look forward to this summer in Bury St Edmunds & we're pleased to announce a new fun event - the Elm-O in Ipswich. Park-O, on Saturday afternoons, is aimed at families, juniors & adults who are newcomers to the sport - beginners & improvers, in other words. The Elm-O event is raising funds for the St Elizabeth Hospice - & will be good practice for urban orienteering, as well as giving you a different way to experience the art trail.
This year's Suffolk Schools Orienteering Championships were held on Thursday 23rd May. There had previously been regional heats in Eye, Beyton & Mildenhall & nine teams from seven schools had qualified for the final, held for the third year running at the Thorpe Woodlands Adventure Centre in Thetford Forest.
Congratulations to all who took part, particularly to the teams from Debenham who achieved 1st place in the individual pairs event and who also won the team competition and to the Roughham & Charsfield teams who were placed 2nd & 3rd respectively. The complete report and results list can be downloaded from our website.
We had beautiful weather in Sheringham Park for the EAOA championships last Sunday. Peter & Steve had created some excellent courses in what is one of East Anglia's most "technical" areas (tricky contours, in other words!). Congratulations to Bronwen on her win in the W21 age class. The other class winners can be viewed here and the overall results on the Norfolk OC website.
Belated congratulations to our 2018 Club League prizewinners: Clive (Seniors, 1st place), Sarah (Seniors, 3rd, & 1st Lady), Barney & Tim (Juniors, joint 1st place) & Chloe (Juniors, 3rd, & 1st Lady). Holding presentation ceremonies has proved to be a little difficult, but we've now managed to catch up with all except Tim at different orienteering events (some of them on a very wet Knettishall Heath!). The final results can be seen here.
We also found a carrier bag containing a pair of shoes & gloves. Apparently it had been left at a previous event - maybe the recent WAOC or CUOC event - & brought to Knettishall in case the owner was looking for it. If yours, please email email@example.com
