Yvette Baker Competition 2022

Congratulations to our team of Juniors for their success at winning the Shield section (for smaller clubs) of the Yvette Baker competition on Sunday, at an event hosted in Irchester Country Park by Leicestershire Orienteering Club. It was a closely-fought competition, with only 4 points between the first three teams once the number-crunching had been completed.

The overall scores were: SUFFOC: 497, SOS: 496, BKO: 493, while the individual contributions made were: James & Ethan, 100 points each on the Orange & Yellow courses respectively, & 99 points each for Alesha (Green), Ben & Olivia (both on Light Green). Full results can be viewed on the LEIOC website.

Our thanks to all those who took part, either competing or by supporting, with a special mention of Mr Roach from Barnardiston Hall School who helped to transport some of the team members.

Unlike the previous Challenges, this one's off-road, in Chantry Park, making it particularly suitable for all age groups - & uses a new, highly detailed, orienteering map.
