What will SuffOC members be doing on October 21st? A fair number of them will be orienteering on Cannock Chase, in the area marked in red on the map, competing in the final of the CompassSport Trophy. At the end of the Area Heats in Shouldham Warren on Sunday SuffOC found themselves in the lead of the Trophy section for smaller clubs, some 23 points ahead of the nearest rivals, Essex Stragglers. Norfolk OC also won the Cup section for larger clubs, so will be accompanying us to the final. Congratulations to all those who took part, and our thanks to the members of the various East Anglian clubs who helped to stage the event.
