There have been successful Xplorer sessions for younger families at our Needham Lake event & also during the Holywells Park activities yesterday. There will be further chances to "have a go" over the next few weeks:
The Walton Chasers club, which is hosting the CompassSport Final this October, has already circulated preliminary information about the event, to be held in Abraham's Valley, Cannock Chase. Sarah is busy collecting names of those who plan to compete for the club, so please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to add yourself to the list.
We have combined SuffOC/NOR teams travelling out to Finland for this weekend's Jukola & Venla relay races. The Venla, or women's relay, starts at 12:00 BST on Saturday & the Jukola (men's relay) at 21:00 BST. Details of the courses, terrain, maps & results tracking can be found on the Jukola website. Good Luck, everyone!
Congratulations to Barney for being selected for the JROS training camp at Lagganlia near Aviemore this summer. Only 24 Juniors (M/W14s) from across the country obtain places at this camp, so there has been stiff competition at the qualifying events which included the JK & the British & regional championships.
This year's Suffolk Schools Orienteering Championships were held on Thursday 24th May. There had previously been regional heats in Eye, Beyton & Bury St Edmunds & ten teams from eight schools had qualified for the final, held for the second 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, 2nd and 3rd places in the individual pairs event and who also won the team competition, and our thanks to Clive & Simon from SuffOC and the staff from the various schools involved. The complete report and results list can be downloaded from our website..
